Rental Licensing Program

Effective January 1, 2015, all rental properties in Lawrence are required to maintain a valid rental license in compliance with City Ordinance 8840. Find out information about our program online at our Rental Licensing and Inspection page.

We previously offered an online payment form for the city’s Rental Licensing Program; however, now that the city is transitioning to our new Rental Licensing and Inspection Program, the online payment feature has been removed since every rental now needs to complete a new application form with revised payment fees. You can still pay with a credit card after the new Rental License Application form has been submitted to our office. Contact us at (785) 832-3345 or e-mail us to discuss your specific fee schedule.
