License Reinstatement

If a property has had a rental license revoked by the City of Minneapolis, it can be reinstated. Depending on the situation, City code requires a certain amount of time to pass, and then the property owner must meet several conditions.

If a person has had a single rental license revoked, they must wait three years before applying for any new rental licenses.

If a person has had two or more rental licenses revoked, they must wait five years before reapplying for rental licenses.

Once this period has passed, or if there's a new owner of the property, they must meet these requirements:

Once the applicant meets these conditions, the Minneapolis City Council will consider the reinstatement. If approved by the City Council, Finance & Commerce will publish the reinstatement. After Finance & Commerce publishes the reinstatement, the applicant must submit a rental license application and fees.

There cannot be renters at the property until the rental license has been issued.

For more information, see Minneapolis Code of Ordinances 244.1910, licensing standards, or Minneapolis Code of Ordinances 244.1945, reinstatement.
