In 2014- 2016, Inspections will be required for all Seattle rentals.  These inspections apply to all registered rental housing units, except those receiving public subsidies that are already subject to regular inspections, those getting regular inspections from their lending institution, and accessory dwelling units if occupied by an immediate family member of the resident home owner.

The following schedule applies for the registration requirement:

·       By July 1, 2014, all properties with 10 or more rental housing units

·       By December 31, 2014, all properties with 5 to 9 rental housing units

·       By December 31, 2016, all properties with 1 to 4 rental housing units

Each registration must include a sworn statement that the rental housing units meet specified subset of the health and safety standards called for in Seattle’s housing code.  Registrations must be renewed every five years.
