The Healthy Homes Rental Inspection Program provides regulations for minimum
health and safety standards in rental housing in Kansas City, Missouri. It is a
complaint-based program in which inspectors respond when a resident files a
complaint about a substandard housing issue.

The ordinance requires rental property owners to register for and renew a
permit by Dec. 31 of each year on every rental unit they own. The City extends
to rental property owners a three-month grace period before late fees are
assessed. The grace period ends March 31, 2019. After that, a late fee of 10
percent of the amount owed will be added each month.
