Salt Lake City Landlord/Tenant Program

Salt Lake City is proud to introduce the Landlord/Tenant Initiative, sometimes referred to as the Good Landlord Program. The goal of the program is to address aspects of property management that help eliminate code violations and public nuisances while controlling and preventing illegal activity on rental properties that impact the quality of life within our neighborhoods.

Under the new program, all residential rental properties, including single and double family homes, boarding houses and fraternities/sororities, require a business license. However, with participation in the Landlord/Tenant program, per unit licensing fees can be discounted by up to 95%.

NOTE: THE LEASE ADDENDUM IS NO LONGER A REQUIREMENT FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE SALT LAKE CITY LANDLORD/TENANT INITIATIVE. The SLC online training course identifies a requirement for a SLC Lease addendum, while having a lease with your tenants is highly recommended, this is no longer a requirement for participation in the program.
