County expands rental registration program
Baltimore County’s eleven-year-old Rental Registration Program is expanding its requirements for which rental homes must be registered with the county by removing certain exemptions
This spring, 6th District Councilwoman Cathy Bevins sponsored an amendment to expand the county’s Rental Housing License requirement to include more than 1,600 properties that were previously exempted and must now be registered with the county by Sept. 1, 2018. These include properties not connected to public sewer, and the new law also amends the family member exemption.
“We are reaching out to landlords to make sure they know that they must register their properties with the county if this change in the law affects them,” said Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler. “We have wonderful neighborhoods all around the county and we work very hard to preserve a positive environment for everyone to enjoy.”
Complete information about the Rental Registration Program is available on the county website, including the application, inspection sheet and the criteria for exemptions.
