2014 Rental Housing Survey Report Online 

Annually, DHCA Licensing and Registration surveys Montgomery County multifamily rental facilities on tenant services, unit sizes, rents, occupancy and structure types.  Results include 799 facilities with 82,426 rental units from Montgomery County, City of Gaithersburg, Rockville and Takoma Park.   For more information, contact us at 240-777-0311 or by email.


Montgomery County landlords were required to complete the 2015 Rental Housing Survey by April 30, 2015.  If your facility has not completed the 2015 Rental Housing Survey, it is now past due!  The Survey is divided into two sections, Facility and Units. The Facility section has questions regarding the community’s amenities and fees.  The Units section asks for rent and occupancy data for each apartment.  Both sections must be completed by Montgomery County multifamily rental housing landlords as a requirement of license.
