In 2008, City Council approved an ordinance requiring the registration of all single-family and duplex rental properties. The ordinance went into effect on March 1, 2009. Each owner of single-family or duplex residential property that serves as rental property is required to annually register the rental property (see applications above). The associated fee to register is $15 annually per single-family property or $7.50 annually per each side of a duplex property.
On June 24, 2014, the City Council approved revisions to the Rental Registration Ordinance that included a citation provision and a requirement that the lease be presented upon request to the administrator for review. The revisions take effect on August 11, 2014.
NOTE: The City of College Station does not allow for more than four (4) unrelated persons in a dwelling unit. (City of College Station Code of Ordinances; Chapter 12: UDO: Article 11: Definitions - Family).
How do you define rental property?
Rental property is considered as any single-family or duplex dwelling unit that is not owner occupied, regardless if rent is charged. A duplex dwelling is considered a residential structure providing complete, independent living facilities for two separate families, including permanent provisions for living, sleeping, cooking, eating and sanitation in each unit. Single-family dwellings are considered residential units that provide complete, independent living facilities for one family including permanent provisions for living, sleeping, cooking, eating and sanitation.
