New Rental Registration Guidelines

     Owners of rental properties that fall within Districts 1 and 2 which encompass Wards 4,5,8,9,10,11,14 and 16 should have received a letter from the City regarding Residential Rental Registration.  Some are calling in with questions and this correspondence will hopefully clarify many of them.


     Along with the letter, landlords/owners received a 2013 Residential Registration Form, a Summary of Ordinance Appendix “B”, and an Acknowledgement of Receipt of Summary of Ordinance Form.  To be in compliance with the Ordinance the following must occur by NOV 30th:
1.  You must complete and return the 2013 Residential Registration Form to the Codes Office.
2.  If you live outside of Lycoming County YOU must designate a property manager that does reside within Lycoming County and designate it on the 2013 Residential Registration Form.
3.  You must obtain a License that is free of charge that will be issued upon successful registration through the Codes office.

     The following must be done by January 1, 2014 in order to be in compliance with the Rental Ordinance.

1.  YOU must provide each tenant with a copy of the Summary of Ordinance Appendix “B”.
2.  YOU must have each tenant sign the Acknowledgement of Receipt of Summary of Ordinance.  (This form does not need to be returned to the Codes Office.  This form is for your records and is YOUR proof that you provided each tenant with the Summary of Ordinance.) 

     

      Owners of rental properties that fall within Districts 3 and 4 which encompass Wards 1,2,3,6,7,12,13, and 15 will be receiving the same letter and accompanying documents in the very near future.


     Along with the letter landlords/owners will receive a 2013 Residential Registration Form, a Summary of Ordinance Appendix “B”, and an Acknowledgement of Receipt of Summary of Ordinance Form.  To be in compliance with the Ordinance the following must occur by DEC 30th:
1.  You must complete and return the 2013 Residential Registration Form to the Codes Office.
2.  If you live outside of Lycoming County YOU must designate a property manager that does reside within Lycoming County and designate it on the 2013 Residential Registration Form.
3.  You must obtain a License that is free of charge that will be issued upon successful registration through the Codes office.

The following must be done by January 1, 2014 in order to be in compliance with the Rental Ordinance.

1.  YOU must provide each tenant with a copy of the Summary of Ordinance Appendix “B”.

2.  YOU must have each tenant sign the Acknowledgement of Receipt of Summary of Ordinance.  (This form does not need to be returned to the Codes Office.  This form is for your records and is YOUR proof that you provided each tenant with the Summary of Ordinance.)  This will help you prove that YOU have met this requirement should it ever get called into question in a legal proceeding.

PUBLIC SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENTS



Over the past several months there have been many articles and editorials written about the City of Williamsport's Landlord/Tenant Registration Ordinance. Many of the articles and editorials have been slanted one way or another by individuals with a vested interest in the outcome of the ordinance.

As the person responsible for drafting the ordinance, I believe that it is time to set the record straight. I believe that the taxpaying public deserves to know the truth not rumors and opinions spoken as fact through numerous media outlets.
