Notice to Landlords: Enhanced Rental Registration is in Effect Print E-mail


Rental property owners can expect to receive their annual tenant registration notification letter in the mail within the next several weeks.  As was the case in prior years, landlords are required to disclose the names of all rental unit occupants.  Additionally, our updated rental property ordinance features several significant changes that are designed to augment the Borough’s capacity to abate blight.  Landlords should be aware of the following stipulations:    


•    If the rental property is under the ownership of a corporation or other business entity, then the name, address, and phone number of a managing partner must be provided on the tenant registration form.  
•    If the property owner does not reside in Allegheny County or an adjacent county, then he or she must designate a responsible agent who lives in the aforementioned geographic area.  The responsible agent does not have to be affiliated with a professional management or maintenance company but rather can be any authorized adult individual aged 21 or older.  
•    All landlords are required to attain a rental license for each of their properties.  Initial licenses will be conditionally provided upon completion of the tenant registration form.  No license will be provided to the property owner until all delinquent real estate taxes and overdue sewage charges have been paid in full.  Operation of a rental unit without a license is illegal.      
•    Over the course of the next five (5) years, all rental property units in the Borough shall be subject to a health and safety inspection by the Building Code Official.  Failure to correct violations that are discovered in the course of the inspection could result in the revocation of the rental license.
