Landlord Registration - Residential Rental Permit Ordinance Enacted
On November 19, 2013, the American Fork City Council enacted an ordinance requiring owners of residential rentals to register with the City. The ordinance was brought forward by the Neighborhood Preservation Committee with the endorsement of the Police department in an effort to improve the lines of communication and notification between the City’s emergency services and the residential rental owners. The ordinance makes available to the Fire, Police, and Public Works departments the immediate contact information of the owners of residential rentals in the event of a critical incident at their rental properties. In the past, when a fire, water break, or criminal event has occurred at a residential rental with or without the renter’s knowledge, the City has been challenged to locate the responsible party (owner) for notification and to turn the property over to. For example, if a rental is vacant or the renters are on vacation, and the water line ruptures between the main and the house, the city struggles to locate the property owner. The same is true for a structure fire or a criminal event where the renters are arrested and removed from the property – who does the City contact? True, the owner’s information is on the county tax records, but that information may represent a family partnership, LLC, or business for which there is no emergency contact information. This ordinance will facilitate a quicker notification between the City services and the property owners.
