Good Landlord Program

On June 18, 2013, the South Ogden City Council passed Ordinance 13-15, Adopting a Good Landlord Program. A copy of this ordinance can be accessed on the South Ogden City web site by clicking here.

Under the  ordinance:

  • All rental dwellings within city limits must obtain a rental dwelling license. Rental units for which no financial payment is received (or those otherwise exempted by act of law) are exempt from licensing, however, if you have received a letter from the city stating that you need to get a rental license, please contact us so we can update our records. 

  • The cost of obtaining a rental dwelling license will be significantly discounted for property owners who participate in the Good Landlord Program.

  • Participants in the Good Landlord Program agree to fulfill certain requirements regarding tenant screening, selection, and lease agreements, as well as to attend an approved landlord training class. (see below)              

Residential Rental License Applications    Applications may be completed on-line (payment must be made at time of submission by credit card) or printed and faxed 801-622-2718, emailed, mailed or hand delivered.

Good Landlord Program (participation is optional)

South Ogden City has two providers that offer the Good Landlord classes. They are the Utah Apartment Association (click for link) and The Good Landlord (click for link).  These are independent companies with no affiliation with South Ogden City, but provide a service to the City and its residents.  Although the city has scheduled classes at the South Ogden City Hall for your convenience, residents looking to fulfill their class requirements may attend at any convenient location. Both companies offer classes throughout the state, as well as at a variety of times.  The Good Landlord also offers an on-line course. Please visit their web sites to find a time and location that will  best work for you and to register and pay for the classes.  The city does not register or take payment for these classes.

Note* If you already have a certificate from another city stating that you have taken a Good Landlord class, South Ogden will accept that certificate.  You do not need to take the class again.

The next classes scheduled HERE at South Ogden City Hall, 3950 S Adams Ave. will be:
