The City of North Olmsted requires all owners of residential rental properties with one, two or three units as well as apartment buildings to register with North Olmsted’s Division of Building. North Olmsted City Council repealed Chapter 713 and enacted Chapter 1319 (Licensing Rental Units) of the City’s ordinances. Chapter 1319 requires owners of rental properties with 3 units or less to register.
A license for each property is required before it is leased. The ordinance requires renewal of the license each calendar year.
The Building Commissioner is authorized to make inspections of all structures or premises containing rental units to determine whether such structures or premises comply with City Ordinances, the Fire Prevention Code or State laws. Failure to permit such an inspection may result in the suspension or non-renewal of the license.
