Residential Rental Structure Registration
The City of Orchard Lake has an Ordinance establishing standards for the maintenance of sanitary and safe residential rental structures and residential rental units in the City. This ordinance is designed to promote the continued maintenance of quality and safe rental properties, enhance and maintain the value of all properties, and to reduce the causes of blight affecting neighborhoods.

All existing residential rental structures shall be registered, inspected, and certified prior to the date on which the property is first occupied for rental purposes.
