Rental License & Inspection Program

All residential rental properties in the Village are required to be licensed and inspected annually. The Village of Glendale Heights Rental Property Crime Prevention Partnership Program, administered by the Community Development Department, requires those who own such properties to submit an application every year for a rental license. The fees for this license vary with the type of property being rented. The license application and fees are due by February 1st of each year, and expire on January 31st of the following year. Late fees are charged each month that a license is not obtained.

Regulations for all landlords and/or owners who rent or lease single-family or multiple-family dwelling rental properties require that each applicant review the Village of Glendale Heights Rental Property Crime Prevention Manual and acknowledge their understanding and compliance with the requirements. An Acknowledgment of Understanding and Compliance form, confirming compliance with the review requirement of the code, must be completed and submitted to Community Development to obtain the license. A link to the manuals and forms are provided below. Printed copies of the manual and forms are available upon request to the Community Development. Once a landlord and/or owner has completed the Acknowledgment of Understanding and Compliance form, a copy will be maintained on file with the Community Development Department as a record of compliance with the requirements of the Village Code.

In addition, regulations also require the addition of a Lease Addendum to all leases or rental contracts for single-family or multiple-family dwelling rental properties in Glendale Heights.
