About the Crime Free Rental Housing Program:

Requirements & Applications:
The application on the right is a fillable document and therefore hand-written applications will not be accepted. The application must be turned in to Development Services located on the 2nd floor of the Village Hall with payment in the form of a check made out to "Village of Orland Park".

Approval:

On January 19, 2009, the Village of Orland Park trustees passed a new ordinance implementing the Crime Free Rental Housing Program for the Village of Orland Park.

Purpose:
The purpose of this ordinance is to provide minimum standards for residential rental housing for the protection of the life, health, welfare, and property of rental residential owners and tenants, as well as that of the general public. Inspections will facilitate the enforcement of minimum standards.

Problem Prevention:
Laws regarding rental properties and eviction proceedings can be complicated. Most small property owners operate their rental unit as an investment and may not have the background, information, or experience that would assist them in preventing or dealing with problems on their property.

The Crime Free Rental Housing Program can help you be prepared to prevent problems or be ready to quickly and effectively deal with problems should they occur.

Registration:
The yearly registration fee for this program is $50 per building. Tri-annual inspections fees are calculated based on type and number of units.
