Rental housing structures with more than four units are currently not required to register.
If your property is classified as "relative homestead," you need to register as a rental property. Relative homestead is a property tax classification that allows the owner to retain homestead status on his or her property if a relative occupies it even if the owner does not occupy the home.
If the property owner lives outside of the seven-county metropolitan area, the owner is required to appoint an agent that resides within the metropolitan area.
Please review the application for full information requirements. Rental Registration Application
You might receive a letter requesting you to register even if you are not renting your property. A property may be listed as a possible rental property by the city because it is classified as non-homestead by Ramsey County or if the owner name does not match the homestead name. Since these conditions are not perfect indicators of a rental property, some properties may receive a letter even if the property is not being rented. If you receive a letter but are not renting your property, you will not need to register and there is no fee. However you will need to complete the rental registration exemption form and send it to the city.
