ABOUT RENTAL INSPECTIONS IN BALTIMORE COUNTY
Baltimore County Council Bill 87-07 was passed on December 19, 2007 requiring that all buildings or a portion of a building that contain one to six dwelling units, intended, or designed to be rented, leased, let or be hired out to be occupied for living purposes be registered and licensed with Baltimore County.
Purpose: To establish a licensing program in the county in order to create an additional procedure for the enforcement of county codes and regulations to protect and to promote public safety, health and welfare.
This program is a County Council initiative that started as a pilot program in certain neighborhoods and has grown, by vote of the Council, to cover all of Baltimore County on February 3, 2008.
All buildings or a portion of a building that contain one to six dwelling units intended or designated as rental units must register and be licensed with Baltimore County. Part of the rental application process will involve a rental inspection by a licensed home inspector.
Note: If you are filing an Exemption Affidavit instead of the Baltimore County rental application, there is no fee required.
