Video Transcript

- Denver City Council has passed the Healthy Residential Rentals For All legislation. It requires all Denver landlords to hold long term rental licenses for each of their properties. Those licenses should take a couple of years to phase in, and they're designed to help protect tenants and help the city keep tabs on those landlords. The application fee is $50 and inspection fees range from $50 to $500, depending on how many rentals someone owns.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT STACIE GILMORE: Fees must be reasonable. This isn't a tax that we're assessing on property owners. It's a fee.

- Before receiving a license landlords must have their properties examined by certified inspectors.
