Residential and Commercial Occupancy Permits Program

      The City of Collinsville wants to ensure that all residential and non-residential properties are safe, maintained, and meet the minimum requirements of the International Property Maintenance Code. We act to accomplish this through the City’s Residential and Commercial Occupancy Permit Program. The Occupancy Permit Program provides property maintenance inspections for residential and commercial properties located within the city limits and an Occupancy Permit is issued when a property passes the inspection.

      An Occupancy Permit is required when the occupancy or ownership of a home, apartment unit, or commercial building (including tenant spaces) changes and there is not a current permit on file. Residential Occupancy Permits are valid for 2 years. Commercial Occupancy Permits are valid for 1 – 2 years, depending on specific features of the property.

      Residential Rental Occupancy Permit Program Start: September 1, 2018

      Residential Change of Ownership Occupancy Permit Program Start: Anticipated to be December 1, 2018

      Commercial Occupancy Permit Program Start: Anticipated to be January 1, 2019

      In order to help landlords and property managers understand how the Residential Rental Occupancy Permit Program will operate, responsibilities, etc., the City held three  "open houses" at City Hall, at various times, to ensure everyone has an opportunity to attend.
