The Housing Council does not inspect rental properties listed in our Rental Registry.  It is recommended that you inspect the rental property prior to any agreement to rent it.  In addition, contact the Neighborhood Service Center and ask if there are any open violations to the rental property in question.  This is particularly important if you are a DHS or Section 8 recipient.
