Yes, you may if you comply with the Village's Rental Licensing Program. The program requires that all homeowners complete an application, complete a form granting the Village permission to inspect the property, complete a Crime Free Housing seminar, and pay an annual licensing fee. Once the initial application has been completed an inspection on the property must be performed. The program requires that you pay your license fee annually but follow-up inspections occur only every fourth year after your initial inspection.
