All properties in the city that are rented require a rental license unless the property is rented to an immediate family member (e.g., son, daughter, parents, etc.) and provided they apply for and are granted a relative homestead exemption.
Brooklyn Park has one of the most thorough rental licensing programs in the state. We strive to ensure licensed rental properties are decent, safe and sanitary. Rental properties are subject to an annual inspection and completion of the inspection (including repairs, if necessary) is required in order to renew the license prior to its expiration.
The City recognizes the value of a responsible property owner and investor. The Investment Owner's Program, knowledgeable building inspectors and a Community Oriented Policing Unit are available to help you prevent and resolve issues you may encounter as a landlord.
