When renting a unit from a landlord it is important to do your homework. This can include viewing the surrounding neighborhood, researching local amenities and speaking to potential neighbors. Another important factor is seeing if the landlord has registered the property with the local municipality. Many communities require a certification or registration. This affords the tenant some assurance that the property is up to code and meets the city’s regulations. Please note that not all cities or municipalities require this designation.
We have developed this list in Oakland County to provide reference of the local requirements.
