Rental Permits

The City of Newark requires all properties that are not owner-occupied but are leased to a tenant to acquire a yearly rental permit. It also requires all owner-occupied properties that let rooms out to more than two people, unrelated to the owner, to purchase the same type of rental permit. These permits are used to guard against overcrowding.

If you have questions on the areas and/or the number of tenants you are allowed, please call the department at (302) 366-7000 for more information.
