SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) – The City of Sioux Falls announced on Wednesday that all long- and short-term residential rental units in the city are required to be permitted.

The new permit program replaces the City’s previous rental registration process.

According to the City, “all property owners and managers, regardless of their registration status under the previous process, need to obtain a permit under the new program.”

“The transition to the new permit process creates clear, straightforward guidance and improves communication between the City, the public, and the residential rental industry stakeholders, like property owners and managers,” said Kevin Smith, the City’s assistant director of Planning and Development Services. “The City appreciates the commitment of the residential rental industry as we work together to ensure our residents have access to safe, secure, and affordable housing. We are here to help make this transition as seamless as possible for everyone.”

The City of Sioux Falls provided the following details about the change:

“The training requirement allows the City and industry to conduct proactive education on important property management topics, like landlord/tenant relations, common code enforcement and property maintenance issues and best practices, and tenant rights,” Smith said.

On July 1, there will be a $50 permit fee per address of each residential rental building or structure.
