The Bangor Township Code Official is required to maintain a registry of rental housing owners and premises. The owner(s) of a single-family dwelling, two family dwelling, dormitory, multiple dwelling, dwelling unit or guest room in a lodging house, hotel or motel, multiple dwelling, or rooming house, containing any unit(s) which will be offered to any non-owner for occupancy, or to let, or to hire for dwelling purposes must register their names and places of residence or usual places of business and the location of the premises regulated by this act with the Bangor Township Code Official and pay a rental registration fee to the Bangor Township Treasurer. The owner(s) must register within 60 days following any day on which any part of the premises is offered for occupancy. If the premises are managed or operated by an agent, the agent’s name and place of business shall be placed with the name of the owner in the registry (Property Maintenance Code 103.6.1 as amended).
The Township is divided into ten districts for the purpose of rental property registration, as described in the Appendix B of the Property Maintenance Code and depicted in the District Map.
Fees as set in Appendix A of the Property Maintenance Code for rental housing facilities located in these districts must be paid to the Township Treasurer before the corresponding dates shown and before that date and month of each year thereafter (Property Maintenance Code 103.7)
Rentals units subject under the Property Maintenance Code shall not be occupied unless a certificate of compliance has been issued by the Code Official. The certificate of compliance shall be issued only following inspection of the premises except as provided in subsection 104.7.3.
The owner of rental units subject to registry shall apply for certificate of compliance. The Code Official may authorize the issuance of temporary certificates without inspection for those premises in which there are no violations or record and shall issue such temporary certificates upon application in cases where inspections are not conducted within a reasonable time. Temporary certificates shall also be issued for premises with violations or record, whether existing before or after the effective date of this subsection, when the owner can show proof of having undertaken to correct such conditions, or when Bangor Township has been authorized to make repairs, or when an owner rehabilitation plan has been accepted by the Court. An application for certificate shall be made when the owners, or any of them, enroll in the registry of owners and premises. If the owner fails to register, any occupant of unregistered or uncertified premises may make application and shall pay a $10.00 fee at the time their certificate is issued (Property Maintenance Code 104.7.3.
