Safe and Healthy Housing in Renton - Registration of Residential Rental Units in Renton
Renton city staff has taken up the issue of mandatory licensing and inspections of rental property in the city of Renton. Current drafts of legislation have tie-ins to "Safe and Healthy Housing" - a not-for-profit organization with political ambitions of its own - and would require rental units meet minimum safety and environmental health standards. See the attached documents for specifics of the proposal.
Property owners who are landlords would be required to obtain a business license and register residential units available for rent in the City of Renton. Residential rental units would be inspected and certified as meeting standards for safety and health.
A public meeting will is being held to discuss the proposed Safe and Healthy Housing Program. RHAWA strongly encourages all members who own rental housing in the city of Renton to attend and share your concerns and opposition with staff and electeds in attendance.
When: Thursday, March 2nd - 3 - 5 pm
Where: Renton City Hall; 1055 S Grady Way;
Renton City Council Chambers; 7th Floor
