Lewiston's Rental Registration Program Underway


Following the recommendations of an Ad-hoc Committee composed of landlords, city staff, and other stakeholders, the City Council has enacted a no-cost rental registration program that requires the owners of all multi-family buildings with three or more residences to register such buildings. The purposes of this program include ensuring the City:

  • Has accurate, up-to-date, and complete ownership, management, and contact information for every multi-family building;
  • An accurate inventory of dwelling unit quantity and configuration; and
  • An accurate assessment of certain items that impact the health and safety of dwelling units.

Owners are required to register their buildings annually prior to March 1st.  Applications can be either filed electronically or via regular mail on hard copy. The necessary forms and instructions are available at
