Chapter 10 Article IV of the Iron Mountain City Ordinance is designed to promote the continuing maintenance and quality of safe rental properties and to enhance and maintain property values throughout the city.
All structures being let, rented, leased, or permitted to be occupied by non-owners (including rent-free arrangements) are required to be registered and inspected to ensure compliance with this Code before they may be occupied. Registration is one time per structure per ownership. Changes to ownership require re-registration. New owners of rental structures are responsible for the completion of the registration process within 30 days of closing or change of ownership.
Registration fees are set by council annually. View current fees list (PDF). Registration of property owned and occupied prior to November 1, 2010, but which have not yet been registered, may require additional late or other fees in addition to the registration fee.
Both the registration fee AND inspection fee are due at the time of registration.
