Licensing and inspection of rental properties
The focus of the Residential Rental Property Program is to maintain the quality and stability of rental dwelling units which will preserve the value of land and buildings throughout Bloomington. Rental housing conditions that adversely affect or are likely to adversely affect the life, safety, general welfare and health of renters can be corrected and prevented by enforcing minimum standards within the city.
The Residential Rental Property Program consists of inspecting and licensing:
Environmental Health Inspectors annually examine both the interior and exterior of all rental property within Bloomington. They respond to citizen complaints concerning rental housing and systematically inspect the exterior of rental units throughout the year.
