Raleigh, NC Rental Owners Now Have To Register With The City

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with RED Properties NC #129285

Beginning March 1, 2009, all rental property owners will be required for rent circa properties leesa finleyto register their rental properties under Article H: of the City of Raleigh Code.  Properties will then need to renew annually during the same time period.  March 1 - April 30.

This rental registration will create a database that will promote responsible management, assist in providing a safe habitat for residents and neighbors of rental dwellings, safeguard property values and expedite repair of residential housing accommodations.  The database may also be used to improve contact in case of emergency by Police, Fire, EMS or Inspections.

The fee for registration is $30.00 for the first unit on the property and then $10 per unit for each additional on the same parcel.  Those who do not register their rental units could face fines up to $2000 PER MONTH. 

An interesting article on WRAL.com illistrates several counterpoints to the program.  Councilman Philip Isley feels the program is a way to generate revenue while Mayor Meeker claims the amount is minimal and isn't about generating revenue.  The City stands to generate as much as $750,000 per year due to the program.

If you are a rental property owner you must register between March 1 - April 30, 2009.  Please visit the City of Raleigh | Rental Dwellling Registration for more information and access to online registration.

Everyone complains about how government should not get involved BUT that is until YOU are a neighbor of some person's rude and offensive renter. Believe me, when that happens... you DO want to know who the parties are and what laws are in place to press the necessary charges. If you rent it: you need to be accountable for it.
