In August 1999, the Arizona Legislature passed the Residential Rental Property Statute (A.R.S. 33-1902), which requires all property owners to register their residential rental property. Registering rental property gives public safety agencies a way to contact owners when emergencies or problems occur on their property.
If you own rental property, please contact the Maricopa County Assessor's Office at 602-506-3406 or visit the Assessor's Web site to determine the requirements for registration. Failure to register a residential rental property carries a mandatory civil penalty of $1,000 plus $100 for each additional month the property is not registered. For questions about this process or problems with a rental property near you contact the Code Compliance Office at 623-882-7815.
The Goodyear City Council approved a Goodyear Residential Rental Property Ordinance (Article 11-1-21) that falls in line with the State adopted law.
The Ordinance, which establishes minimum health and safety standards for rental properties, applies to both the interior and exterior of a dwelling. This applies to any apartment, single-family home, or mobile home that is rented or leased for a fee.
Please contact Code Compliance Office at 623-882-7815 to report possible code violations.
