Rental Licensing FAQs
Owners are required to provide a minimum of 2 parking spaces for up to a 3-bedroom home. If you have more than 3 bedrooms, you will need on additional parking space for each additional bedroom. Each parking space needs to be a minimum of 9' wide x 17' long.
Required for Rental Licenses:
A code official will require the construction of additional parking if they determine there is space on the rental property to provide or construct the required off-street parking space(s) in conformance with the Code. If it is determined that adequate parking cannot provided, there is a $100.00 non-conforming parking spot fee for each spot not provided.
Once the Life Safety office receives a completed rental license application, along with the required fees, an initial inspection will be scheduled within 7-10 business days. The purpose of this inspection is to identify what, if any, code corrections need to be made. If the inspector identifies code violations during the initial inspection, a reinspection will be done to verify all corrections have been properly made. Upon verification that the property meets minimum housing code requirements, the rental license will be issued.
An expired license (even for one day) is considered an unlicensed rental per code. The license renewal should be applied for well in advance of the actual license expiration to allow time for the routine inspection and re-licensing process to occur.

The intent of the operation permit program is to gain compliance with the Minnesota State Fire Code. This code helps ensure a greater level of life safety for the public, owners/occupants, and firefighters.
We are looking to provide the least hazardous situation within the confines of existing buildings. The most common checks are ensuring the maintenance of the fire suppression systems, making sure exits are clear and accessible, and confirming the building is being maintained for its intended use.
Failure to comply with the Minnesota State Fire Code is a misdemeanor, and result in a citation.
