Are you interested in converting your home into a rental property? 

The rental property must be registered and inspected before the tenants begin to live in the unit(s). 

The Ann Arbor Rental Housing Office inspects all residential rental units in accordance with the Housing Code: Chapter 105

The main functions of Ann Arbor's Rental Housing Office are to:

  1. Protect the health, safety, and welfare of the residents of the City of Ann Arbor;
  2. Protect a diverse housing stock from deterioration; 
  3. Accomplish all of the above at the lowest possible housing cost to owners and renters while maintaining code compliance.
