Protecting Public Health, Safety & Welfare
The City of Wayzata administers a rental dwelling licensing program. This program helps to ensure that all rental dwelling units meet minimum standards to protect public health, safety, and welfare.
On March 6, 2012, the Wayzata City Council amended Ordinance number 815, which requires all premises rented in whole or in part as a dwelling unit to be licensed annually. This includes all apartment complexes, single family homes, condominiums with private entrances, town homes, duplexes, owner occupied duplexes, and guest and caretaker houses. Rental dwelling units must meet the requirements of Wayzata City Code Chapter 803 regarding property maintenance.
