The City of Collinsville has adopted the Crime Free Housing Program, which requires both commercial and residential landlords to obtain a Landlord License and register their individual units. The program itself is managed by the Police Department, while the Landlord Licensing responsibilities are based within the Community Development Department.
For complete information in the Crime Free Housing Program, please visit Crime Free Housing.
The Landlord License carries an annual fee of $25, plus a registration fee of $25 per unit. Once your application is approved, you will receive a printed license that you can use to promote your participation in this state-of-the-art crime prevention program that is now in operation in 48 US States. When it’s time to renew, you will receive notice from the City; just remember to keep your information updated by notifying the License Clerk of any changes in the status of your registered units.
