Landlord Registries

Code: DF-7000.4570

Registries established by cities, towns, townships and other municipalities which contain the current residential addresses of nonresident owners of rental property located within their jurisdiction. The registries are generally established by law and provide a way to identify and contact landlords when there are problems with rental property. Rental property owners (or their agents) are required to maintain their address on file whether the property is occupied or vacant and must inform the municipality if there is a change in their residential address.
