The Residential Rental Inspection Program was created, effective October 7, 2010, by the Santa Cruz City Council after adopting the ordinance (No. 2010-17) requiring all residential rental units within the City limits to be registered to ensure the maintenance of the rental housing stock for basic health and safety standards.
The City is urging all property owners and/or property manager to be proactive and register the rental property before it is listed for rent. Under certain scenarios, an exemption can be granted. If you qualify for an exemption, please fill out an Exemption Form with the required documentation.
