This form is required for all properties; it may be used to register covered units and to claim units exempt. It may also be used to update a rental property’s ownership information and/or update owner/manager contact information.


Owners/managers must complete this form for EACH RENTED UNIT that is covered by the registration requirement.

For example, if an owner has a property that is comprised of two units and both are rented, then the owner must submit 1) a Property Registration Form, and 2) two Tenancy Registration forms (one for each rented unit).

Note: Tenancy Registration Forms are NOT required for exempt units or vacant units.


Use this form to register a property/unit for the first time, claim an exemption(s), update rental property’s ownership information, and/or update owner/manager contact information.

Complete one Tenancy Registration Form for EACH tenant-occupied, covered unit on a rental property. Owners must submit a Tenancy Registration Form for EACH non-exempt unit that is tenant occupied and covered by the rent registration requirement.

Completed Registration Forms may be submitted in the following ways:
