Will the city be inspecting the interior of my single dwelling rental unit?

No, the City will not be conducting interior rental inspections of single dwelling units unless follow-up is required for a checklist item noted during the annual application process. Another instance where an inspection could be required is for an outstanding violation, or if a code violation complaint is received. When a new license is applied for, or at each annual renewal, the Woodbury rental licensing program will have the property owner complete a self-certification checklist during the rental license application process. 

  • The self-certification checklist includes property maintenance items that will need to be certified by the property owner as being presently in good condition and in working order. If an item is identified as not being in good condition and in working order, staff will work with the owner/applicant to establish a timeline for correction of any deficiencies and scheduling of follow-up inspections as needed once corrections have been completed.
