City of Fridley Rental Licensing Process

If you have any questions regarding Fridley rental property licensing please contact the Fridley Rental Property Inspection Division at 763-572-3616.

The Rental Housing Division mandates existence of rental property licensing and maintenance program, which corrects substandard conditions, and maintains a standard for rental property. The City of Fridley believes in providing for public health, safety, and welfare of its citizens.

Chapter 220 applies to all buildings, which are rented in whole or part as a dwelling for persons other than the property owner. It includes accessory-structures such as garages and storage buildings, and appurtenances such as sidewalks, parking lots, and retaining walls, which are on the lot where the rental property is located.

View and download Chapter 220: Residential Rental Property Maintenance and Licensing Code. If you are interested in renting out your home you will first need to complete a Rental Property License application and attend a Crime Free Training. You can download a copy of the license application here. For qualified training course schedules view the online course listed at Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota. The cost of the course is $55. Other key information and tips not included in the course can be found at Rentec Direct. Contact the  Fridley Police Division at 763-572-3626 with any questions regarding the online classes. This course needs to be taken every five years.

Prior to the rental license being approved, you will need to have an initial inspection. This checklist can be used as a guideline on what to except during your first inspection.

If you currently have a rental license and your property is no longer being used as rental you will need to complete the "No Longer Rental" form.

Our staff would like to thank you for all the time and effort you have put into maintaining and operating your rental properties here in Fridley! This attachment will provide you with more important information on the inspection process.
