Peoria Heights Rental Registration Program

On June 19, 2018, the Village of Peoria Heights Board of Trustees voted in favor of amending the Village code to require the registration of rented residential properties.  Per Ordinance 2018-1561, the owners of rental property must file a registration statement with the Peoria Heights Housing Inspector annually.  Registration is for a calendar year with the program beginning effective January 1 of each year.

Registration fees are $100.00 per residential rental unit.  Multi-unit apartment buildings with more than four units in a single building shall pay a rate of $25.00 per residential unit. Rental units will be inspected on a rotating and as needed basis to ensure compliance with Ordinance 2018-1562 which establishes minimum standards for residential housing.  If the unit is selected for inspection, the Housing Inspector will contact the homeowner.
