A new law took effect on August 1st, requiring ALL Baltimore City rental properties, single family as well as multi-family dwellings, to be licensed to operate as a rental by January 1, 2019.

All Baltimore City rental properties:

1) Must be registered with Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) using the online portal.

2) Must be inspected by a State Licensed, Baltimore City registered Home Inspector in order to receive a license from the DHCD.

NOTE: Failing to register and have your property inspected could result in a $1,000 fine and suspension, revocation, or denial of your rental license.

You can register a Baltimore City rental property here: Property Registration

You can access the list of Baltimore City registered Home Inspectors here: Registered Home Inspectors

As this process unfolds, we are sure there will be adjustments made to the program. We will do our best to continue to update the community. If you have any questions please reach out to info@KeyGroupMD.com and we will do our best to assist.
