Rental Property Registration

The Town of Middletown adopted a new rental registration ordinance and revised its existing rental inspection policy. All properties utilized as rental properties must now be registered with the Town of Middletown Licensing and Inspections Department. There are no fees involved in this registration process.


Rental inspections are required at the change of each tenant. All inspections are to be made with the rental unit vacant, clean and all utilities turned on. The Town's rental inspection checklist should be followed in preparing the unit for inspection.
