I received a Certificate of Occupancy application form for my two-family home but I don’t have any renters. I live in one unit and the other unit is vacant. I have no plans to rent out either unit.

You are required to submit a Certificate of Occupancy Exemption Form. Effective 2021, this form must be submitted online via the City’s Citizenserve portal. Visit the Housing Rental License page for instructions on submitting an exemption form.
