Rental Housing - Inspection and Permitting

The City of Midland inspects and certifies all homes, duplexes, rooming houses and apartments in Midland that are not occupied by the owner of such properties. This includes properties where no rent is being collected and/or the occupants are related to the owner.

If the owner is occupying a single-family home, they may have up to two (2) boarders without requiring a rental inspection. A single-family, owner-occupied home with more than two renters requires a rental inspection. No more than four (4) unrelated tenants may occupy any single rental unit.

Other occupation restrictions may apply on a case-by-case basis; contact the Building Department at 989-837-3383 with any questions.

If the City of Midland has not already contacted you about beginning the inspection and certification process for the rental property(s) that you own, please call the Building Department at 989-837-3383.

Rental units may not be rented out until inspections have taken place and units have been certified by the City's Building Department.

Registering with the Building Department

Before each unit is rented, rental property owners are required to contact the Building Department to provide the property owner's/managerís name, address and a contact phone number, plus the address of the rental unit(s) and the number of units on the property. This is to ensure that the property is inspected and certified before it is occupied.

Rental property owners can contact the following Building Department staff to register:

  • Randy Kursinsky - 989-837-3385

  • Julie Moe - 989-837-3384
