April 4, 2018, Stafford City Council approved the Single-Family Rental Registration Program. The intent of this program is to foster clean and safe rental properties (single-family rental homes) that will enhance the health, safety, and quality of life of all residents of the City of Stafford.
Beginning May 21, 2018 owners or the owner's agent of rental properties (single-family rental homes), located in the City of Stafford, will be required to register their properties annually by submitting a registration application with a non-refundable fee of $250. The program also requires a mandatory annual comprehensive inspection and a discretionary inspection for any critical or life safety violations under certain circumstances. (Ref: Chapter 14 of the Stafford City Code).
We are reaching out to you as our records indicate that the above-referenced location may be a single-family rental property.
If the property is not a rental, you may be missing some significant tax savings. For more information on that, contact 281-261-3944 for details.
Starting on May 21, 2018 you can register your property(s) and pay online by going to Rental Property Registration Form (PDF) or print and submit a complete application with payment to Residential Rental Registration and Inspection Department located at 2610 S Main Stafford TX 77477.
To register successfully, please enclose a completed application along with a copy of the owner's picture ID and the appropriate fee when registering your single-family rental property.
Please Note: The deadline to register is September 1, 2018. Any documents received after September 1, 2018, will be subject to a penalty accessed by the City of Stafford Municipal Court Department.
** Incomplete applications and/or missing documents will not be accepted.
