Is My Unit Registered?

The City requires every rental unit in Seattle to be registered under the Rental Registration Inspection Ordinance (RRIO) with few exceptions. The program establishes minimum standards required for rental housing in the City of Seattle. Some housing is exempted from registration such as Seattle Housing Authority (SHA) owned housing, owner-occupied rentals, or accessory dwelling units. Find out how to register your property.
