Yes. Annual registration, including payment of the annual registration fee is a requirement of the program.
Yes. The annual registration fee is per rental property.
The HSF is per rental unit. If you own a duplex, you would need to pay one annual registration fee and a HSF per unit (door).
If your rental property passes the initial inspection or has minor violations (and they are corrected within 30 days), and you have not been the subject of a code enforcement investigation within the last five years, you would qualify for self-certification.
You must conduct an inspection every three years and at the change of tenancy. You must also keep a record of all inspections for a period of six years and present them to an RHIP inspector upon request.
Yes. The RHIP will randomly inspect a minimum of ten percent of all self-certified properties.
All violations are the responsibility of the rental property owner. If the tenant has caused the violations, the RHIP will work with the owner and the tenant to achieve compliance; however, the owner is ultimately responsible to bring the rental property into compliance.
No. If the tenant desires an inspection, an inspection will be conducted.
Yes. Only if there are no known substandard living conditions or exigent circumstances.
Yes. The RHIP will notify the owner and the tenant at least 30 days in advance.
Yes. Properties that are newly constructed within the last five years and properties that are subject to verifiable, routine, periodic inspections by another government agency are exempt. Proof of the routine, periodic inspections will be needed. You must also complete a RHIP EXEMPTION application and return it to RHIP@citrusheights.net.
Yes. The RHIP has no authority to demand the rental property owner not pass the fees on to the tenant. However, the cost of the program is a max of $6.66 per month for a single unit rental property.
The HSF and the annual registration fee will be collected by the County's Consolidated Utility Billing and Service (CUBS) at the beginning of each calendar year. The county will then forward the fees to the City.
