In September of 2016, the Independence City Council adopted a new program called “Rental Ready” which would establish an interior residential rental dwelling unit inspection. What is the Rental Ready Program? Rental Ready is a program with goals to protect the health, safety and welfare of residents, maintain attractive and desirable neighborhoods, and ensure minimum standards for the interior of residential buildings. The program will begin on June 1st, 2017, and applies to all residential rental units in the city and would require all properties to be licensed and pass a basic health and safety inspection every two years.
Landlord/Tenant Code - requirements for landlords/tenants are available in the Landlord Tenant Guide. To make a complaint, please fill out the Landlord Tenant Complaint Form and return a signed copy to the Community Development Department.
