As of September 6, 2017, the City of Chicago no longer requires owners of multiple dwelling (four or more units) buildings to register with the City. Previously, Section 13-10-030 of the Municipal Code of Chicago, required any building containing four or more family units or ten or more sleeping accommodations to be registered with the Building Department each year. Here is the notice from the Department of Buildings, City of Chicago:
"Effective September 6, 2017, the City Council passed an ordinance that repeals the Multiple Dwelling Registration provisions (Chapter 13-10 of the Municipal Code of Chicago). Please note that the department will no longer require or accept registrations of multiple dwellings pursuant to Chapter 13-10 effective immediately." Evan Sauer
