Effective January 1, 2013, all property owners that own rental property in Mecklenburg County must register with the City. This new ordinance is now in effect.
Per CMPD: Although the owner may list a property manager as the point of contact, the owner is ultimately responsible for what occurs on or in the property. If the property violates the ordinance, the owner is responsible for the fees.
The fee is only applied if the property falls under the ordinance for crime and disorder activity. The online registration is mandatory, but free for owners.
The owner will need to list their contact information. He or she can list a property manager’s information as a secondary contact.
Please make sure you register within 6 months as this is mandatory. You can register and read the ordinace here:
