When should I be applying for a rental license?

All current single dwelling rental owners should obtain a license for their property prior to January 1, 2024. Rental licenses will require annual renewal. Applications for renewal must be received by the city no later than the date of expiration of the current license term.

Annually the City of Woodbury will send renewal reminders to current license holders with the contact information we have on file, but it is ultimately the responsibility of the license holder to renew the license. If a license is not renewed by the due date, late fees may apply.

  • For new build applicants, application for a rental license should be made after the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.
  • For rental conversion applicants, application for a rental license should be made prior to conversion and tenant occupancy.
