Code Compliance

​Single Family Rental Registration and Inspection Program

The Code Compliance Single Family Rental Registration and Inspection Program requires an annual registration and renewal of rental properties (single family homes, duplexes and condominium units In Dallas). The program also requires single family rental properties be inspected at least once every five years but not more frequently than once a year. The program does not limit the number of complaint-based inspections that can be conducted. All the inspections are performed by a City Code Officer and include the interior, exterior and premise.

The Single Family Rental Program’s mission is to improve the quality of life for Tenants in Dallas.  Mandatory rental registration and inspection provides the tenant with a voice, an expectation of standard living conditions and the reassurance of the owner's willingness to be a good landlord by being code compliant.  We are here to help the tenant.
