Rental Housing Inspectors

Landlords are required to hire a qualified rental housing inspector from the City's approved list. A qualified rental housing inspector means a private inspector who has passed the RHIP inspection training course and possesses at least one of the following credentials:

  • American Association of Code Enforcement Property Maintenance and Housing Inspector certification;
  • International Code Council Property Maintenance and Housing Inspector certification;
  • International Code Council Residential Building Code Inspector;
  • Washington State licensed home inspector; or
  • Another acceptable credential the director establishes by rule.

Inspections will be conducted at the landlord's expense. Inspectors shall not be existing employees of the landlord. Re-inspections required as a result of a failed inspection must utilize the same inspector as the original inspection.
