Rental property owners workshops

The City of Minneapolis hosts a workshop for rental property owners and managers.

City-hosted workshops

The City of Minneapolis provides a training for rental property owners and managers. 

The Rental Property Owners/Managers Workshop (RPOW) is now available in an "on-demand" training. This way you can learn about rental licensing and resources at a time that is convenient for you. 

The on-demand training will cover:

  • Rental License and Renewal Requirements
  • Your Property's Tier and Fee Level
  • Your Responsibility to Renters
  • The Rental License Inspection Process
  • Common Code Violations
  • What Happens After Your Inspection

Completing this training and the accompanying quiz will qualify you for a $250 discount on the conversion fee for new rental licenses. This discount is valid for five years on any conversion fees. You can also submit your proof of attendance from this course to receive a $250 refund on any conversion fees paid in the past two years. 

Thank you for your effort and commitment to provide safe and well-maintained housing for members of our community. We look forward to working with you!
