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