Yearly Rental Safety Inspection Program
The Building Department oversees the Yearly Residential Rental Safety Inspection Program which was established in 2007. This program requires the landlord to register their property every year, which involves a scheduled safety inspection. The inspection reviews the property for any property maintenance violations or life-safety issues.
The City of Prospect Heights will be conducting required inspections of all rental units and common areas in accordance with Ordinance 0-07-32, 3-7-6 and 3-7-1. The rental property business license is $25.00 per property and the rental inspection fee is $100.00 per unit. A fee of $175.00 will be assessed for the first failed inspection and each additional re-inspection will be $175.00.
