Rental Registration Program
In order to promote the health and safety of all Riverside residents, multi-unit rental properties are required to register annually with the Village. Property inspections take place once a year, and individual units are inspected once in a three-year cycle. Inspections are intended to ensure that rented housing in Riverside complies with general safety and code standards.
Properties with three or more rented units are required to renew registration by December 31, 2022 and pay the $15 per building annual registration fee. In November, the Village mailed information regarding the registration, renewal, and inspection process to applicable properties.
Building owners can review their account status on the BS&A Portal, schedule inspection dates, and make payments. Visit the property portal
If you own a property with three or more units and you did not receive registration information from the Village, please email Village Planner Anne Cyran at email@example.com or call 708-447-1241.
Rental Unit Registration
- Property owners must renew the registration for each building used as a rental property by December 31, 2023. Registration renewal information for 2024 was mailed to owners on November 9, 2023 with a December 31, 2023 deadline.
- Registration applies to all dwellings in the Village of Riverside containing three (3) or more residential rental units and they must be registered in order to have tenants.

Renew A Property Registration
The Online Registration Form is now available and properties must renew prior to December 31, 2023. Please use the online form below to renew the registration for each rental property. Upon confirmation that the submitted information is complete, staff will send the registration invoice. After properties are registered, inspections will be scheduled.
Schedule a Property Inspection
Once a property is registered, it is time to schedule rented unit inspections. In the first round of inspections (2022-2024), properties either schedule an inspection that will be conducted by the Village of Riverside, or those without any property violation in the last year can hire a third-party, professionally licensed inspector to conduct the inspection using the Village's inspection checklist and certify that inspected units meet required standards.

- See Official 2022 Inspection Checklist. (PDF)
Note: The required official inspection checklist will be used to conduct inspections. The Village Inspector will use this version and provide a copy onsite. Please ensure the official inspection list is used for compliance.
Searching for properties compliant with the Rental Registration Program
On a period basis, the Village makes a list of registered property addresses available to the public and prospective renters. When properties successfully complete inspections, a listing of issued rental registration certificates is made available. The program is fairly new but the goal is for all properties to be 100% compliant on an annual basis.
Properties included in the list below have successfully registered, completed required inspections, and met minimum inspection requirements. Inclusion on the list does not mean that all units have been inspected in 2022-2023 or indicate that current conditions meet all property maintenance and program requirements.
For more details about rented residential buildings or specific inspection results, please contact the Village to request information.

Contact Village Staff:
Properties that were not included in the program may, in the following program year, be required to register because of a change in the status of rental units.
From time to time, even if your property is a solely owner-occupied building, you may receive a notice to affirm that the status of your multi-unit property has not changed.
