Rental License Application


This License is required for all renters and lessors of any type of housing unit within the City.

This program is one part of a series of initiatives the City is undertaking to ensure high safety and quality standards for our citizens. The rental license will need to be renewed every year by 4:30 p.m. on April 15. There is no fee assessed for the license as long as it is submitted by the deadline. Late applications are subject to a $60 late fee.

Applications should be submitted to the Community Services Department (20 West Pike Street, 2nd floor, Covington, KY 41011) by mail or in person on or before 4:30 p.m., April 15. The purpose for the license is to maintain accurate contact information for the owner of each property in order to be able to suspend the right to rent individual units without impacting the owner's occupational license.
