Due to the volume of interest and inquiries relating to the rental housing world, the City of Bellingham is attempting to provide more opportunity for our community's landlords to get involved.

Landlord/Tenant Information and Resources 

The City of Bellingham receives numerous requests for help from tenants and property owners on issues around rental housing. A resident of the City of Bellingham that has concerns regarding substandard conditions can call into the Permit Center or submit a Code Enforcement Request (pdf). Additionally, we have complied some information and resources to assist tenants and rental owners in understanding their rights and responsibilities, and to identify useful resources available to our community.


The City is increasing its outreach and education efforts to landlords through a presentation series on rentals in Bellingham. On this page you will find more information regarding past events, including any available materials, as well as upcoming events!
