Rental Unit Business License – City of Peterborough
The City of Peterborough, under By-Law 17-067, requires all rental units of four bedrooms or more to obtain a business license. Properties that are licensed are inspected by a By-law Enforcement Officer/Building Inspector and a Fire Prevention Officer.
All of our properties have been inspected and a license has been issued or is forthcoming. Each license is valid for one year and is subject to an annual renewal.
The requirement by the City of Peterborough for landlords of a rental unit to obtain a business license is intended to ensure that tenants are residing in safe rental units. In compliance with the By-Law, each license must be displayed in an unobstructed manner on the rental premise in a ground-floor window at the front of the premises and in a conspicuous place in the entrance hall of the property.
