Baltimore County Rental Registration


    In December 2007, Baltimore County passed a law requiring landlords to register their rental properties and have them licensed. By July 1, 2008, all properties must be registered with the County and have passed an inspection by a licensed home inspector. I offer this service to any landlord on a per unit basis at competitive prices.


  There has been a change to the requirements for carbon monoxide detectors in rental dwelling units. After April 1, 2018 units must have carbon monoxide alarms installed within the dwelling on every level, including the basement. 

  If you have a two-story home with an unfinished basement, you must have three carbon monoxide detectors installed.  More information can be found on the Baltimore county rental inspections website.  

    I urge all clients to read and understand the County Requirements prior to the inspection to prevent the need and expense of a re-inspection.  To facilitate this type of inspection, all inspected items should be easily accessible at the time of the inspection.

The inspection includes the following items:

  • Smoke Detectors
  • Carbon Monoxide Detectors on all levels
  • Electrical System
  • Plumbing System
  • Proper Operation and Ventilation of Furnace, Water Heater, Washer & Dryer (if installed)
  • Proper Emergency Egress from Basement Sleeping Area
  • Proper Railings on Interior & Exterior Steps
  • Readily Observable Health & Safety Hazards
