Licenses required for smaller rentals, too

Although larger multifamily buildings contain much of Oak Park’s rental housing stock, the Village also has plenty of smaller properties that must be licensed through the Village.

Landlords and managers with apartment buildings of one to three must be licensed by Dec. 31. This includes owners that rent out their condominium units.  Fees are $10 per unit.

As part of the 2016 licensing process, owners and managers must participate in a management seminar, either in person or online. In-person seminars have been scheduled for October and November. Representatives will be on hand from various Village and community organizations, including Neighborhood Services, Fire, Health and Police departments.

Owners and managers of larger multifamily buildings must be licensed by Oct. 31 to avoid late fees.
