Revoke License

Negligent Landlords

When a landlord does not take care of their properties, the City Council has the power to revoke  the landlord’s rental license(s).  A landlord of 15 rental properties in North Minneapolis has had two of his rental licenses revoked and may have the remainder jeopardized as well.

The article from the Star Tribune details the events leading up to revocation of the landlord’s rental license: http://www.startribune.com/local/minneapolis/125272999.html

Under Minneapolis city ordinance, landlords are automatically banned from the rental business for five years if at least two of their licenses are canceled or revoked.

A landlord or tenant should contact an attorney with questions regarding the effect the landlord’s loss of rental license will have on the lease.
