The City Council passed a Rental Licensing and Inspections Ordinance on January 2, 2018.

The purpose of the ordinance is to “provide minimum standards to promote public safety, to safeguard life, limb, health, property and public welfare by regulating and controlling the use and occupancy, construction and maintenance of all Rental Dwellings within the City (City Code Section 124.01)”.

The ordinance requires all Rental Dwelling Units to be licensed and all Rental Dwelling Units, with the exception of hotels, motels, hospitals or nursing homes, assisted living, group home or independent living facility, or board and lodging home licensed and inspected by the State of Minnesota for compliance with state building and/or fire codes, to be inspected by the Building Official.

Residential rental property owners are required to submit a completed Rental Licensing and Inspection Application for each rental property.  Applications may be submitted electronically, by mail, or in person at:

Jordan City Hall
Attn: Planning Department
210 East 1st Street
Jordan, MN 55352

If your property falls into one of the categories listed above, and is therefore not required to be inspected by the Building Official, please provide documentation of the inspection along with your application and application fee. If your property does not fall into those categories it will be inspected within the next three (3) years and you will be notified when it has been selected for inspection.

For more information please consult the Rental Licensing and Inspection Handout 

Please contact the Planning Department with any questions.
