Any building which is rented in whole or in part as a rental dwelling unit within the City of Montgomery must have a rental license prior to the property being occupied. In order to obtain a rental license, the rental units must comply with the Residential Rental Property Maintenance and Licensing Code of Montgomery’s City Code. The main objective of the City's is to ensure the rental unit is decent, safe and sanitary.

The renewal process is the same as the original licensing which will require an application, fees, and inspection of the rental property prior to expiration of the existing license.
