29 May HVAC City Compliance in Columbia, MO
Is Your Rental Property Ready for an Inspection by the City of Columbia?
Rental Housing Compliance
If you own a rental property in Columbia, MO, you must apply for a Certificate of Compliance, according to The Rental Unit Conservation Law, and remain in compliance as long as you own the property. Seasoned property managers may already know the ins-and-outs to meet their requirements, but for those new to property ownership this means you will need to meet the general licensing ordinance, zoning ordinance, property maintenance doe and other applicable standards before you residents may sign a lease. It’s against the law to operate a rental unit without this certificate.
Heating & Cooling Compliance
Part of ensuring your rental property is in compliance with The City of Columbia’s policies includes making sure you and your property are meeting specific HVAC standards. Columbia requires all vented mechanical appliances (like a gas furnace, boiler, hot water heater, etc.) are properly inspected and certified by a licensed HVAC mechanic prior to receiving your certificate from The City.
