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.
