NOTICE: City of San Marcos City Ordinance Sec. 34-821 requires all long-term residential rental properties within the city limits to register with the city. This requirement becomes mandatory on January 1, 2021. We have tried to make it as easy for you to register your properties as possible. Please take the time to register each of your rentals. Multi-family rental properties only need one registration for the entire complex. Homes that are rented out by family members of the property owner are exempt from this requirement. Please direct any questions here.
