    Welcome to Lynchburg’s Rental Inspections 

    Residential dwelling and building standards provide protection for citizens and neighborhoods by insuring sub-standard living conditions are reduced.


    In 1993 the City of Lynchburg first adopted the minimum building maintenance and residential rental dwelling standards for properties within the city limits in order to produce thriving, attractive, safe neighborhoods and enhance citizen’s quality of life. 

    Lynchburg has enacted a "Good to Go" Rental Program in the rental inspection districts requiring non-owner occupied rental property owners to comply with existing habitable standards.


    It is assumed, owners of single or multiple occupied rental properties are "Good to Go" and are expected to be ready for inspection of all habitable marketed rental dwellings. Therefore, if people are living within a rental housing unit/apartment/room- it is "Good to Go".

    Owner's and tenants, please review the Virginia Tenant Landlord Act and the Rental Checklist available under the "resource" link
