Hoarding Task Force

The mission of The Gaithersburg Hoarding Task Force is to assist and support those people and their families who are in need as a result of hoarding behaviors. The Task Force strives to raise awareness and educate the community and other service providers about hoarding issues and available resources.

Landlord-Tenant Affairs

In addition to providing information about the law, the Neighborhood Services Staff is charged with mediating landlord-tenant disputes relating to properties in the City.

Rental Housing and Short Term Rentals

All rental properties (including apartments and single-family dwellings) must be licensed every two years. Prior to issuing the final rental license, staff conducts a complete interior and exterior inspection to ensure the dwelling is safe and in compliance with all applicable housing codes.
