Denver Rental License Inspections

Sunnyside Home Inspections

Sunnyside home inspections is your source for rental property inspections with highly qualified and certified inspectors. The city of Denver now requires residential rental property licensing for all long term rental properties and an inspection by a qualified inspector to obtain the license. A long term rental is a lease of 30 days or more.

The objective of the program is to enforce minimum required housing standards to ensure public health, safety, and welfare. By licensing and regulating rental properties, the program will ensure rentals are generally maintained in a safe and sanitary condition and will supplement the rights and duties of landlords and tenants in the city. The program will help landlords ensure the properties they offer for rent comply with the minimum housing standards. Click here to read about Denver’s minimum housing standards.

How It Works

  1. On the inspection date our inspector will meet with you or your onsite representative to go over the inspection process and answer any questions before we get started.

  2. Unit selection/s will be randomly generated in advance of the inspection date. We recommend providing all of your tenants with written notice of random unit inspection ten and three days in advance of the inspection date.

  3. Using Denver’s residential rental inspection checklist (Click Here) your inspector will perform the inspection noting compliance and documenting any deficiencies with photos, unit identification and detailed notes on what needs to be corrected.

  4. If needed we will return for a reinspection of any punch list items in need of correction and certify resolution.

  5. Approval and documentation. We will provide you with a completed and approved residential rental inspection checklist and all documentation needed to submit to the city of Denver for your rental license.

Keep in mind that you will have 90 days from the completed inspection to submit your application. Non compliant items must be resolved within 90 days of the inspection.
