Seattle Property Management- New Rental Housing Registration & Inspection Program



City of Seattle Mayor Signs Rental Housing Registration and Inspection Program Ordinance October 9, 2012

 

Registration will be required for ALL rental housing units, from single family homes to large apartments with the following exceptions:

 

·     Short‐term vacation rentals

·     Commercial lodging such as hotels, motels and B&Bs

·     Housing units in state licensed facilities like assisted living, adult family homes or veterans homes

·     Hospitals and hospices

·     Emergency or temporary shelters or transitional housing

·     Facilities owned by or managed for Major Institutions

·     Housing units in a religious facility occupied by members of the religious order

·     Housing units, owned by a government entity or housing authority, like SHA

 

Inspections apply to all registered rental housing units, except those receiving public subsidies that are already subject to regular inspections, those getting regular inspections from their lending institution, and accessory dwelling units if occupied by an immediate family member of the resident home owner.
