Renting in Hopkins
Rental property makes up approximately 60 percent of Hopkins' housing.
This list contains apartments, condos and townhome complexes only.
The Section 8 Housing Program helps senior citizens, disabled individuals, families and single individuals pay their rent in a privately-owned rental unit.
The danger to occupants and the difficulty of fighting a fire is greater in a larger building, such as an apartment.
The Hopkins Housing and Redevelopment Authority provides rental apartments for low income persons and families.
The City of Hopkins requires an annual license for all premises rented in whole or in part as a dwelling unit. This ensures that the City of Hopkins has inspected or will be inspecting the property (in accordance with the City's rental inspection program). It is illegal for property owners to lease residential property in Hopkins without a license.
