The City of Pierre is implementing a dwelling rental program to register and inspect rental housing units. The goal is to help ensure the life, health, and safety of those living in residential rental units.
All non-owner occupied residential rental units within the City of Pierre are required to be registered.
Registration will be renewed annually.
Yes. There is a $15.00 per unit fee due anually, upon registration.
If you have a 10-unit apartment complex, the total annual cost would be $150. That breaks down to approximately $1.25 per month, per unit.
If you have a single family rental, the total annual cost would be $15. That also breaks down to approximately $1.25 per month.
All rental units must have a local contact. That means all rental units are required to have an owner or respresentative living within 50 miles of Pierre. The representative could be an owner, manager, friend, tenant, etc.
There is a level of consumer risk that is involved with rental properties. The city modeled the program from other communities that have similar programs. The city will focus on a base level of life and health inspections. Most inspections are only completed once every five years.
