Rental Property Permit



The City of Harrison requires a rental permit for all Residential Rental Property in which three (3) or more individual dwelling units are attached and are owned by the same person or entitiy. Under City Ordinance #1472, Residential Rental Property does not include single, individual, stand-alone rentals that are unattached to other properties or rentals. 

Owners shall register their Residential Rental Property/Properties with the Harrison Fire Department Community Risk Reduction Division. No permit fee will be charged for registration

Upon the completion of the initial registration process, a permit will be issued and shall be valid until December 31’st of each year. Renewal of the permit is required on an annual basis. Properties may be inspected by the Fire Deparment Community Risk Reduction Division as part of the permitting process. 

Failure to register as outlined above and/or failure to maintain current registration through permit renewal shall be deemed a misdemeanor ordinance violation.
