Today, we’re sharing with you some important information on property inspections and registration that landlords must know.
When you have a rental property in the Roseville or Sacramento area, you need to make sure it’s properly registered. The registration process includes a rental property inspection. In this blog, we will cover county registration, city registration, and inspections.
Requirements for Property Inspections and Registration – Sacramento
The city of Sacramento and the county of Sacramento work similarly in what they require for their rental properties. You can go online and download the registration form. Then, simply fill it out and provide your contact information in case there is an emergency.
Once you have the property registered, read through your documentation. You’ll be required to conduct annual inspections on all your rental properties. The inspection requires that a form be filled out and that your inspector notify you of any items that are required at the home in order to remain compliant. Most Roseville property management companies will do these inspections for you. Just make sure that you are working with a company that’s certified to do them.
Requirements for Property Inspections and Registration – Rancho Cordova
Another city near Sacramento is Rancho Cordova, and their process is a little different than what you’ll find in other areas. In Rancho Cordova, the city inspectors will do their own inspections of your rental properties. So, when you’re called for your inspection, you or your property manager need to be present. You’ll need to review what the inspector finds and make any corrections that are required. Not taking the proper steps can lead to fines and penalties.
