Although larger multifamily buildings contain much of Oak Park’s rental housing stock, the community also has plenty of smaller properties that must be licensed through the Village, too. Landlords and managers with apartment buildings of one to three units must be licensed by Dec. 31. This includes owners that rent their condominium units to tenants. Fees are $10 per unit. Owners and managers of larger multifamily buildings must be licensed by Oct. 31 to avoid late fees. The residential rental license application is posted online at www.oak-park.us/forms. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Oak Park offers a variety of services that can be accessed online from a computer, tablet or smart phone. Some of the services are managed directly by the Village, while others are third-party vendors authorized by the Village to conduct transactions.
