Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Policies for Rental Properties
Landlords must approve a tenant’s written request to install an EV charging station in their designated parking space. This requirement takes effect at different times based on the number of units a landlord owns, according to the following schedule:
|Number of Units Owned||Effective Date|
|250 or more||October 1, 2022|
|At least 50 but no more than 250||October 1, 2023|
|Less than 50||October 1, 2024|
All modifications and improvements must comply with federal, state, and local laws and all applicable zoning and land use requirements, covenants, conditions, and restrictions. The EV charging station installer is responsible for the cost of the installation, maintenance, repair, removal, or replacement of the equipment; electricity consumption; and any resulting damage to the EV charging station or surrounding area. The EV charging station must be designated as a fixture of the rental property if not removed upon the termination of the lease. Additional terms, conditions, or exclusions may apply.
