The City of Medford has established a Residential Rental Registration program to help enhance the quality of life, and ensure the safety of its citizens. The purpose of this program is to educate property owners, landlords and tenants as to the responsibilities and the rights of each, to decrease the number of code violations, and to assist in developing and updating a city-wide database to identify housing inventories throughout the city. The program is also designed to assist the city’s emergency services and public safety agencies in notifying property owners about any potentially hazardous situations and to prevent such situations from occurring in the future. It is the intent of the City of Medford in establishing this program to protect its citizens, establish and maintain a safe and clean environment in our community and to assist city and county planning commissions in determining future growth needs in our community.

The fees for a Residential Rental License are as follows:
- $0.00 base fee for landlords with only 1 unit (registration is still required)
- $40.00 base fee plus $1.00 per unit for landlords with more than 1 unit (for example, a landlord with 6 units total, would pay the $40.00 base fee plus $6, for a total of $46.00)
Failure to register or annually renew the Residential Rental License is a citable offense.
