The City of Ennis Rental Registration Program
This program promotes public health, safety, and welfare by regulating and controlling the use, occupancy, construction, and maintenance of all rental units within the City.
Key Features of the Updated Ennis Rental Registration Program:
Rental Dwelling Inspections:
To ensure the safety and well-being of our residents, rental dwelling inspections will be conducted:
When there is a change in tenancy in single-family dwellings; Upon request by the tenant; or When an exterior code violation indicates potential life safety or critical violations.
Ensuring Safe Living Environments:
To protect the most vulnerable members of our community, it is unlawful for an owner to rent a dwelling unit within 1,500 feet of a child area to a person prohibited under Section 9-51 of the Ennis City Code.
Maintaining a High Quality of Life:
The Ennis Rental Registration Program helps maintain the overall quality of life within the city by establishing and enforcing minimum standards for rental dwelling units. These standards ensure that rental units are safe, healthy, and structurally sound.
Together, we can make Ennis a safer, healthier, and more vibrant community for all residents.
