About Us

Licensing and Registration Unit (L & R) is responsible for licensing residential rental properties and registering Common Ownership Communities under the provisions of Montgomery County Code, Chapter 29, Landlord-Tenant Regulations, and Montgomery County Code, Chapter 10A, Common Ownership Communities.  The three L & R staff issues over 100,000 rental unit licenses annually for apartments, single family homes, townhouses, and condominiums for the Department of Housing and Community Affairs (DHCA) and registers over 1,000 homeowners and condominium associations for the Commission of Common Ownership Communities (CCOC) generating over $5 million in annual revenue.  The staff also conducts the Montgomery County annual Rental Housing Facility Survey and publishes the results on the CountyStat website.
