Home Rental Inspections


As of right now, staff schedules are very booked up with everyone trying to fit in their inspections for their STR permits. The site only allows bookings for 90 days out.  Each day, the 90th day will open available inspection times. Please check back frequently as inspections can be canceled making those slots available.


Schedule a Short-Term/Vacation Home Rental Inspection

Effective April 1st, 2023, NTFPD will be collecting cost recovery fees for the interior and exterior inspections (Defensible Space Inspections) for short-term rentals. NTF is still collecting cost recovery fees for exterior inspections (Defensible Space Inspections) for all properties.

The bookings page is only for homeowners who self-manage their rental.
Property management companies are required to email Fire Prevention Officer Manzano to schedule inspections for multiple properties.
