Mayor Lee Brand announced the launch of the City of Fresno’s Rental Housing Registry at a press conference at City Hall. The registry is the first step of the Rental Housing Improvement Act, requiring property owners and managers the ability to register their rental properties online.
“This is significant step forward in the effort to improve Fresno’s housing stock through the Rental Housing Improvement Act,” Brand said. “By proactively identifying substandard housing violations and ensuring rental housing meets minimum health and safety standards, we will collectively safeguard and improve the housing stock of decent, safe and sanitary residential rental units within our community.”
The purpose of the registry at rhr.fresno.gov is to create a site that property owners can us to register more than 90,000 rental units in the City of Fresno. The goal is to work with property owners to achieve compliance of health and safety code violations and improve the quality of Fresno’s rental housing stock.
Registration must be updated whenever there is a change of ownership or contact information with 30 days of receiving the initial notice. There are no fees to register a rental property.
