The focus of the Rental Licensing and Inspection Program is to maintain the quality and stability of rental dwelling units which will preserve the value of land and buildings throughout Bloomington. Rental housing conditions that adversely affect or are likely to adversely affect the life, safety, general welfare and health of renters can be corrected and prevented by enforcing minimum standards within the city.
The Rental Housing program licenses many types of rental dwelling units including:
Housing with services dwellings
Accessory dwelling units
Environmental Health Inspectors annually inspect both the interior and exterior of all rental dwelling units within Bloomington. They also respond to complaints concerning rental properties and systematically inspect the exterior of rental units throughout the year.
