Single family unit landlords must know these rules and regulations, and be licensed by January 2024. In order to successfully get a license, a certified inspector certified by ASHI, INTERNACHI, or CMI and ICC is required. There are a limited number of certified inspectors in Denver who meet these qualifications. Once licensed, landlords will only need to renew every 4 years. Single family homes built in the last 4 years are not required to get an inspection. Colorado Complete Inspections has the most certified inspectors in the city of Denver, who are highly trained to perform visual, non-invasive inspections, to inform the owner of any issues in the rental property. We will take photos of every part of the checklist and report back with a custom issue punch list of our findings. We'll work with you every step of the way, including our client care team facilitating re-inspection, and notifying you of all re-application steps.


Single Family Homes

A single-family house is a free-standing, single unit residence inhabited by one tenant or one family of tenants. For this unit type, the landlord owns the entire building and the land it is built on. All single-family rental properties must be licensed by January 1st, 2024. Single family homes will be inspected throughout the whole building. Single family homes are advantageous for property owners because they offer detached space, privacy, and simplified management. They are also easier to maintain than larger multi unit properties and they're inspected as a single unit when being inspected in compliance with Denver's policies.
