Rental Inspection Program

About the Program

The City of Bristol, Virginia, has implemented a Rental Inspection Program that requires interior and exterior inspections of certain rental units. The program involves the inspection of rental properties in two established districts when a unit is offered for rent and every four years after the initial inspection. The program applies in areas with the highest number of complaints and code violations, the highest number of known rental units, and in areas with some of the oldest city housing that requires additional maintenance attention.

Occupants or property owners may request an inspection at any time, whether a property is located in or out of one of the established districts.

Please go to the form center to complete the application or download the fillable form and email it to the Property Maintenance Inspector, Josh Slagle.
