Own Rental Property? You Better Register

On Wednesday, February 27, 2013, the Evansville City Council unanimously passed Evansville City Ordinance No. G-2013-3 (the “Ordinance”) requiring an owner of “Residential Rental Buildings” to register with the Evansville City Clerk. The registration requires an individual owner to provide certain personal and contact information, and if the owner is an entity, to provide additional information regarding its chief executive officer or responsible officer. The Ordinance also requires the owner to provide information regarding its property managers, if any, the address for each Residential Rental Building, and the number of dwelling units being registered. The Ordinance does provide for certain limited exemptions.

Each owner has until May 31, 2013 (and by November 30 each year thereafter) to register with the Evansville City Clerk. An owner shall have 20 days from the date of the purchase of a Residential Rental Building to register the required information with the Clerk. Failure to register subjects the owner to a civil penalty of One Hundred Dollars ($100) for each violation. Each day that such violation continues shall constitute a separate violation.
