Rental Inspection Program
The City of Williamsburg has implemented a Rental Property Inspection Program that requires interior and exterior inspections of certain rental units. The program requires rental properties in four established districts to be inspected when a unit is first offered for rent and every four years after the initial inspection. The program has been set up in areas that have exhibited the highest number of complaints and/or code violations, the highest number of known rental units, and in areas that have some of the oldest city housing that require additional maintenance attention.
Occupants or property owners may request an inspection at any time whether property is located in or out of one of the established districts.
