Rental License Tiering

The majority of residential rental properties in Minneapolis provide safe and sanitary housing. Rental properties that are not regularly maintained, use excessive City services, and are at a higher risk for fire damage, create safety and livability issues for residents and neighbors. A tiered rental license inspection program allows Regulatory Services to prioritize inspections required to maintain safe housing conditions. 

Tiering process 

Determining a property's tier

High risk violations

Your property's tier

Regulatory Services provides the full rental license tier scoring data online to provide property owners and managers with a helpful resource to reconcile their records with the department’s.

Tiering administrative review

If after reviewing the tier data provided in the links above you believe your property was scored incorrectly, please call 311 or 612-673-3000 and ask for an administrative review. Be prepared to provide the element that you believe was scored incorrectly. Administrative reviews are only undertaken if the rental license fee is paid. To ensure equity, sustainability, and build on the positive relationships that we’ve built with property owners, property managers, and tenants, a property’s tier is only changed if the data used to score it was inaccurate.
