Rental Licensing and Inspections

Neighborhood Services works hard to ensure that rental housing in Mission meets high standards of livability. All rental properties must meet adopted life, health, and safety criteria, that are described in the  Rental Housing Manual.


Property owners must register their rental properties by submitting a Rental Housing License Application and associated fees. Houses, duplexes, condominiums, and townhomes are considered single family.


Although the City does not require interior inspections of single family housing, tenants may request an inspection if they feel that life, health, and safety standards are not being met. Inspections may be performed at the discretion of City staff once a Tenant Requested Inspection Request Form is completed and submitted.


Owners of apartment complexes must license their properties annually for a fee of $10 per unit. As a part of annual licensing, interior life, health, and safety inspections are conducted. A minimum of 5% of all units in each apartment complex must be available for inspection. Units are inspected on a rotating basis to ensure that different units are inspected every year.


As with single family properties, tenants of multi-family housing may request an inspection if they feel life, health, and safety standards are not being met.


License Terms and Application
Rental licenses are required for all rental units in the city, and are non-transferable. Licenses are effective on a calendar year basis from January 1st through December 31st each year. If you are interested in renting a property, please download and complete a rental license application available here. Owners residing outside of Johnson County must have a resident agent inside the city. Please Note: We cannot process applications that are incomplete or that contain a P.O. Box as a main contact address.
