Residential rental property

Due to a high volume of submissions, application processing for residential rental properties can currently take up to 30 days. We appreciate your patience.

On May 3, 2021, the Denver City Council passed a new ordinance requiring a residential rental property license. This is for anyone offering, providing, or operating a residential rental property in the City and County of Denver. A residential rental property is any building, structure, or accessory dwelling unit that is rented or offered for rent as a residence for 30 days or more at a time. The licensing program is part of Denver's drive to achieve minimum residential rental housing standards.
