The function of Rental Housing Services is:

1. To protect the health, safety, and welfare of the residents of the City of Ann Arbor;

2. To protect a diverse housing stock from deterioration; and

3. To accomplish all of the above at the lowest possible housing cost to owners and renters while ​​maintaining code compliance.​

Rental Housing Services is a bridge between owner/agents/management companies and tenants.  Our office conducts inspections on all rental units within the City of Ann Arbor every 30 months and issue a Certificate of Compliance to each property that passes inspection.  

Hard copies of Certificates of Compliance, Inspection Notices and Inspection Reports are only available through eTRAKiT.  (Instructions for accessing eTRAKiT are found on the left side of this page.)  It is particularly important that Property Registrations are updated with current and accurate email addresses.
