Rental Licensing and Inspections Program
All rental properties in the City of Osseo must be licensed and renewed every year. Please see the Rental Licensing and Inspections Program for information and fees. To apply to convert a single family, duplex or townhome into a rental property, submit a Rental Housing License Application with payment before offering the property for rent, to allow time for the inspection process to be completed.
Rental inspections are done in accordance with the International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC). The IPMC is consistent, comprehensive, and uses comparable property maintenance documents meant to be used with the other codes as adopted by the State of Minnesota. Prepared forms, checklists, and Certificates of Compliance are used to provide consistency and uniformity in licensing and inspection of rental properties.
Licensing and Inspection Process
Rental licenses are renewed annually and the cycle runs from April 1 to March 31 of the following year. Rum River Consultants will either mail or email renewal applications by February 1 of each year with a 30 day window to renew your license.
Inspections are performed on a biennial cycle with common areas in apartment buildings being inspected annually.
See Section 151 of the Osseo City Code for more details. The purpose of this section is to clarify the expectations of property owners to provide safe, structurally sound, and well-maintained rental facilities in the City of Osseo.
