My landlord is a Gold Star Landlord but is not meeting the requirements. How do I report them?
If your landlord is participating in the City of Tulsa’s Gold Star Landlord Program but is not complying with the requirements, you can notify goldstar@cityoftulsa.org.

I am a Gold Star Landlord and my tenant has complained I am not complying with the requirements. What will happen?
If your tenant notifies the Gold Star Landlord Program that you are not complying, housing staff will reach out to you to resolve the issue. If you are in compliance, then no action will be taken.

If you are not in compliance, housing staff will work with you to help you become compliant. If you do not become compliant within 30 days, then you will be removed from the City of Tulsa’s Gold Star Landlord Program and will no longer be eligible for the incentives associated with the City of Tulsa’s Gold Star Program. If you are removed, you will be eligible to reapply after 60 days.

Landlords are prohibited from retaliating against a tenant for notifying the City of Tulsa’s Gold Star Landlord Program if a landlord is not complying. If you retaliate against a tenant for that reason, you will be removed from the program and ineligible to reapply for one year.
