The deadline for registering residential rental property located in Evansville, Indiana, is this Friday, May 31, 2013 (tomorrow). Failure to register subjects an owner to a civil penalty of One Hundred Dollars ($100) for each violation. Each day that such violation continues shall constitute a separate violation.
As you may recall, in February, 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.
Should you need assistance registering or want more information, please contact Ryan Schulz at (812) 423-3183 or RSchulz@KDDK.com as quickly as possible.
