Do I need to register my rental property every year?

Yes. Annual registration, including payment of the annual registration fee is a requirement of the program. Registration is complete once 1) a completed registration form is provided to the City and 2) the annual registration fee and housing stock fees is paid.  (CHMC 50-247)

Registrations are valid for a period of one year or until within 30 days of any change in owner or local contact representative information.
