Rental Housing Permit Renewals

All current Rental Housing Permits will expire on December 31, 2021.

There is no fee for renewal of a Rental Permit if it is renewed prior to February 2, 2022. Renewal applications and self-inspections received after February 2 will be assessed at $20 per structure, plus $3 per unit. A complete copy of the Rental Housing Code, as well as the attached forms, are available at City Hall or on the website.

In 2019, the Manchester City Council adopted Rental Housing Code Chapter 160 stating a Rental Housing Permit is required for every residential rental unit. Under this code, every leased, rented or non-owner occupied residential dwelling unit must be registered and a self-inspection form completed. Renting a residential unit to a tenant without obtaining a current Rental Housing Permit is a violation of the City Code and can be punishable as a municipal infraction.
