The Rental Housing Division mandates existence of rental property licensing and maintenance program, which corrects substandard conditions, and maintains a standard for rental property. The City of Fridley believes in providing for public health, safety, and welfare of its citizens.

Chapter 220 applies to all buildings, which are rented in whole or part as a dwelling for persons other than the property owner's family as defined therein. It includes accessory-structures such as garages and storage buildings, and appurtenances such as sidewalks, parking lots, and retaining walls, which are on the lot where the rental property is located. This chapter does not apply to Minnesota Department of Health licensed rest homes, convalescent care facilities, and nursing homes, nor to hotels and motels licensed by the City under Chapter 26.
