The Repeat Offender Program (ROP) was created in 2013 as a rental registration program for properties with multiple code violations. The intent of City Council in passing this ordinance and its amendment (Ordinance No. 20130926-012 (en español); Ordinance No. 20141120-003) was to ensure Austin renters are living in properties that meet minimum health and safety standards, as defined by the International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC).

You can read the 2020 Repeat Offender Program Audit Report in both English and in Spanish.
