Does your rental unit have a St Petersburg Certificate of Inspection?

Old and new properties in St Petersburg

St Petersburg Properties

Several areas of St Petersburg including the Old Northeast and parts of downtown St Pete are designated Certificate of Inspection Program Areas of the City of St Petersburg. You can check the city’s map of these areas. Intended to combat blight and maintain consistency of housing, this program does affect all rental properties in the designated areas.

In Certificate of Inspection Program Areas in St Petersburg a Certificate of Inspection is required for rental units prior to occupancy. The certificate  is valid for one year or until a change in tenancy occurs. The City of St Pete does not charge for this inspection, however if code violations are found, the property owner would be responsible for the costs of these corrections. The inspection can be requested by the owner or by a tenant, though the city encourages renters to first contact their landlord about needed repair or maintenance issues. You can check the City of St Pete website for more information on rental unit inspections.
