Rental Occupancy Registration

The Residential Occupancy Inspection Program requires that each owner of a rental dwelling(s) and/or property(s) within the City to annually register their rental dwelling(s) and/or property(s), including a written report of each tenant known to have occupied a rental property. The report is to include name changes, addresses, and telephone numbers of those in occupancy.  Upon completion of registration, the Loveland/Symmes Fire Department will schedule an inspection of the rental dwelling(s) and/or property(s) to ensure that the rental dwelling(s) and/or property(s) are safe and in compliance with all applicable codes. 

Inspections criteria includes:

  2. Stairs, hallways, and passages to exit are adequately lit and free of obstructions.
  3. Evidence of loose and/or exposed wiring; extension cord misuse.
  4. Evidence of plumbing and/or heating concerns.
  5. Flammable and combustible materials are properly stored.
  6. Smoke Detectors and Fire Extinguisher(s) are in good working order.
