Welcome and thank you for participating in the City of Freeport Rental Registration Program!

** Please note there is no fee if registration if registration is complete by June 1. As of June 2, any unregistered rental properties will be subject to a $50 late fee per unit. **

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 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 and verifying information.

You will be able to pay any late fees online for an additional fee, pay at City Hall with a (credit/debit cards additional fee), or mail a check or money order (no cash please) to: Community Development, 314 W Stephenson St, Freeport, IL 61032-4327. 

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.
