Are any properties exempt from the RHIP?

Yes. Properties that are:

  • Newly constructed within the last five years
  • Subject to verifiable, routine, periodic inspections by another government agency.  Proof of the inspections will be needed.
  • Units that are occupied by the owner of record
  • Units occupied by a family member within one generation of the owner of record

To be considered for exemption from the RHIP you must complete a RHIP Application for Exemption and submit the required documentation.
