City Code sets minimum standards for the protection of health, safety, morals and general welfare of the public and of the owners and occupants of dwellings in the City of Cumberland. It is unlawful for the owner(s) of any rental dwelling unit to permit occupancy of any rental dwelling unit by another unless it is licensed by the City of Cumberland and every licensed dwelling unit shall be inspected on an occupancy basis. To license a new rental, visit the Community Development’s online portal: Citizenserve. To schedule an inspection, it can be done through the portal once you are registered and licensed, or you may call the Office of Community Development at 301-722-2000 Ext. 5600.
