What are my responsibilities as a BUYER of a rental property with 5 or more units?

If the property has 5 or more rental units, a new owner is required to comply with the requirements of the Roseville Tenant Notification Ordinance.

New building owners are also responsible for obtaining a new rental license for the property regardless of whether the present owner has a license for the current year.

If you need any help understanding the ordinance or your next steps as a new owner, please contact the Community Development Department. City staff wants to ensure all of your questions are answered well in advance of any sale.
