Rental Licenses

Protecting Public Health, Safety & Welfare


The City of Wayzata administers a rental dwelling licensing program. This program helps to ensure that all rental dwelling units meet minimum standards to protect public health, safety, and welfare.

Rental property owners or a designated manger must also complete the Minnesota Crime Free Multi-Housing Phase I class.


Ordinance 815


On March 6, 2012, the Wayzata City Council amended Ordinance number 815, which requires all premises rented in whole or in part as a dwelling unit to be licensed annually. This includes all apartment complexes, single family homes, condominiums with private entrances, town homes, duplexes, owner occupied duplexes, and guest and caretaker houses. Rental dwelling units must meet the requirements of Wayzata City Code Chapter 803 regarding property maintenance.
