Rental Property Registration
Welcome and thank you for participation in the City of Freeport Rental Registration Program!
If you simply need to pay your fee you can click on the Paypal or PSN link below and enter the number of units and pay. You can also still mail in or drop off your payment too. Thank you!
You will be able to pay online for an additional fee, pay at City Hall (credit/debit cards additional fee), or mail a check or money order (no cash please) to: Community Development, 314 W Stephenson St, Suite 100 Freeport, IL 61032-4327.
The period to register rental properties at no charge is April 30 through June 1.
No registration fee shall be due if the annual registration application has been turned into the Building Commissioner of the City of Freeport between April 30 and June 1. Any annual registration application not submitted by June 1 shall be subject to a late fee of $50.00 per unit. The late fee shall not apply to new applications for registration pursuant to Section 876.04 which may be submitted after June 1.
If you have a multi-unit building you will be responsible for registering and paying for each unit, regardless of whether it is vacant or not.
LOCAL AGENTS and MANAGERS are NOT allowed to register properties. The owner is responsible for completing rental registration, verifying information, and electronically attesting they have done so. You will be required to log in online to register properties (no more paper forms).
If you do not receive a direct communication from the City of Freeport regarding registering your rental property, it does not relieve you of your responsibility to register your rental property.
