Rental Registration

On December 4, 2012 the City of Gary Common Council passed C.P.O. 2012-79, an ordinance establishing minimum standards and a registration/inspection program for residential rental housing units within the City of Gary.

All rental registration renewal fees are as follows:

  • Residential single family = Five Dollars ($5) per single family home
  • Residential multi-units = Five Dollars ($5) for each unit up to four (4) units

This fee is due annually. The window for open enrollment is January 1st until March 30th of each year.

All rental property owners who fail to register or renew rental property must pay a twenty-five dollar late fee ($25.00); assessed for each rental property not registered in addition to the required annual five dollar ($5) fee.

Failure to comply with the ordinance may also result in fines starting at $250.00.
