Annual Property Inspection Fees Pursuant to the Uniform Housing Chapter

Multi-Family and Extended Stay property fees cover city expenses for each annual property inspection. Fees are divided into two payments per year, with billing cycles occurring in March and September.

Standard annual property fees which include the initial inspection and the first re-inspection are as follows:

  • Multi-Family Apartment: $13.80 per unit
  • Extended Stay: $86.04 per unit
  • Fees Pursuant to Uniform Housing Chapter - Resolution 07-770

After the initial and first re-inspection, violations that remain will require additional re-inspection(s) until the violation(s) has been corrected. Each re-inspection will result in an additional $150 fee.

Failure to pay billed amounts upon receipt may result in citation issuance and referral of account to the City Attorney for collections. For information relating to the Multi-Family and Extended Stay Inspection Program, contact Ann Ebert at multifamilyprogram@arlingtontx.gov, or by calling 817-459-5985.
