May 25, 2017
It is once again time for the rental homes owners to have their properties inspected. Please follow the links below to comply with Ordinance No. 14-14 (Rental Residential Property Registration and Inspection). Please note: Landlords must contact the village to confirm their appointments! To confirm e-mail Alice Templin at:

Also, we are pleased to launch the new “Crime Free” Exemption Certificate program! Landlords who qualify are exempt from the annual inspection for one year following two prior years of continued approval by the building commissioner. Thereafter, the properties would be inspected every other year as long as they continue to be in compliance.

To qualify landlords would also have to provide the village with a copy of  the “Crime Free Multi-housing Program” certificate offered by neighboring communities (participation in the classes is free of charge). This program is completely voluntary for the Village of Round Lake Park. However, it is highly recommended as it provides landlords with some safeguards in choosing their tenants including the Crime Free Lease Addendum, (the addendum can be obtained from the Village of Round Lake Park once the landlord presents a copy of his/her certificate).  To date we have close to 30 owners who qualify for the program this year with half of those providing us with the required Crime Free Certificate.

Round Lake Beach, Round Lake Heights, Mundelein and Palatine are a few of the communities which office the certification.

 Please note: If a landlord owns multiple rentals in the village, all rental properties must pass inspections, if just one fails, all his/her properties will be dropped from the program. 

On November 11, 2014, the Round Lake Park Village Board adopted an ordinance amending 150.85 of the entitled “OCCUPANCY CERTIFICATE” and added a new chapter – 154A entitled “RENTAL RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY REGISTRATION AND INSPECTION”, (Village of Round Lake Park, Ordinance No. 14-14).

Purpose of the Program: The Rental Housing INSPECTION Program was adopted to protect the public health and safety by ensuring rental units comply with minimum housing standards as established by Village Ordinance, protect the character and stability of residential areas, correct and prevent housing conditions that adversely affect or are likely to adversely affect the life, safety and general welfare and health of the persons occupying the dwelling, facilitate the enforcement of minimum standards for the maintenance of existing rental residential property and to preserve the value of land and buildings throughout the Village of Round Lake Park.

The village of Round Lake Park requires the issuance of an occupancy permit when a property is sold or rented. Please email us at or call 847-546-2790 a minimum of 24 hours in advance to schedule a Change of Occupancy inspection.

In addition to the items listed on the links below, the inspector will measure the dwelling unit to determine its maximum occupancy load.

The International Property Maintenance Code has standards for habitable space based on; square footage of bedrooms, living/dining areas and Urban Development and accepted by the courts and will be used to compute the load.

After any violations are corrected, or if the Inspector finds no problems, a Certificate of Compliance will be issued by the village.
