Licensing and Registration​

Licensing and Registration is responsible for issuing rental licenses to over 100,000 condominiums, single-family homes, multi-family units and accessory dwelling units under Montgomery County Code, Chapter 29, Landlord-Tenant Regulations. In addition, the unit registers 1,100 homeowner and condominium associations known as Common Ownership Communities under Chapter 10B, Common Ownership Communities. Annually, Licensing and Registration conducts Montgomery County’s Rental Housing Survey on area rent, vacancies, turnover, utilities and amenities which is published on the CountyStat website. For more information about the Licensing and Registration process, please contact us or stop by our location.
