Rental Housing Inspection Program

The City of Citrus Heights established a Rental Housing Inspection Program in 2019.  The purpose of this program is to preserve our neighborhoods and the quality of life for our residents by ensuring all housing meets health and safety standards, and to maintain or increase property values within the City of Citrus Heights by ensuring the preservation of non-owner occupied housing.

If you have questions about rental housing registration, renewal, or exemption, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions Page for Rental Properties in Citrus Heights, or contact us at and (916) 727-5520.
