The HCIDLA is responsible for Citywide enforcement efforts to ensure residential rental properties are maintained in safe and habitable conditions. To fund these pertinent programs, properties under jurisdiction of these programs are subject to fees, of which two major program fees, the Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO) and the Systematic Code Enforcement Program (SCEP), are billed annually.
Residential rental properties may be subject to the RSO and/or the SCEP.
Use your smartphone, tablet, or computer to pay your RSO and SCEP fees online.
Property owners can also pay fees in person or by mail.
There are several RSO and/or SCEP exemptions that property owners may request.
Property owners may also be billed for additional services provided by the Department.
Property owners who are assessed a late/delinquent fee may appeal the penalty.
