The City of Carrollton’s Multi-Family Rental Housing Inspection Ordinance establishes minimum standards that maintain the quality and stability of multi-family rental housing, prevent conditions that adversely affect the health, safety and welfare of occupants, prevent blight and preserve the value of property throughout the city.

All owners of multi-family rental dwellings or multi-family rental units within the city that receive income for units and meet the requirements of O.C.G.A. § 48-13-5 for having a location or office within the city shall:

  • Obtain an Occupational Tax Certification from the city, pursuant to Chapter 22 of the City of Carrollton Code of Ordinances.
  • Provide to the city, prior to January 1, 2022, a code compliance certificate covering 100 percent of their multi-family rental units within the 12-month period immediately preceding the date of the certification.
  • When a newly constructed or significantly renovated multi-family rental dwelling receives a certificate of occupancy, additional inspections on that unit required in this section of the ordinance are not required for 10 years. The building official will determine if renovated units qualify for the 10-year grace period based on the scope of renovations. After 10 years, regular annual inspection of 20 percent of units shall commence and continue.
