Rental property license

  • Wood Village’s Municipal Code, Chapter 5.20 requires all rental property owners to pay an annual license fee of $20.00 per rental unit located within the City.
  • Invoices are typically mailed each year in December.
  • If a rental unit is maintained and held for 180 days or less in a calendar year, the license fee is prorated to equal one half of the calculated fee.

Delinquent water and sewer charges on rental property

  • Wood Village Municipal Code, Chapters 13.04 and 13.12 designate the property owner as ultimately responsible for any delinquent water and sewer user fees incurred by the tenant.
  • Notice will be sent to the property owner when a tenant’s utility account is delinquent and the property is facing potential shut off.
  • We make every effort to collect from the tenant for services provided before requiring payment from the property owner.
  • Please notify the City immediately when tenants change so that we can update our records.
  • You are, of course, welcome to leave the utility billing in your name therefore always knowing the status of payment for the property.
