In October 2013, the Roseville City Council passed an ordinance requiring multifamily rental dwellings with 5 or more units to be licensed. The Rental License Program helps assure that MRDs with 5 or more units are safe, sanitary, and well-maintained throughout our community. Beginning in 2018, the Fire Department began managing the program.

The license fee is paid before the end of the first quarter of each year. License fees can be paid online or by sending a check to the Fire Department.
Fees are set by the City Council on an annual basis.
Approximately 33 percent of building units are inspected each year. Additional units may be inspected if the inspector determines more are needed to give an accurate rating of the entire rental building.
The fire inspector chooses which units to inspect. The owner/manager is required to give reasonable notice of entry to all rental unit tenants.
A license is valid for one year.
The license is issued when the building has passed inspection and the license fees have been paid.
A copy of the Rental License Ordinance is available in Title 9; Chapter 908 of the City Code.
