A quick post to let you know we’ve just post a clearer version of the basic six-step process to apply for a business license for your basement rental. As with any project, there could be some variables including applying for building permits if necessary to come into code compliance, but this is essentially the process. You can get everything done – except for the rent control registration – on the second floor of our new offices at 1100 4th Street SW. A lot of the minor repairs that may need to be made might be able to be done with our Postcard Permit which you can get online from home or work for about $30 and without ever stepping foot in our offices. See the more than 60 projects this covers and apply here. Thanks all for your recent comments and support.
