A new Rental Registry for all rental property in Metro Louisville is now up and running online. Effective March 1, 2017, all property located in Louisville Metro and occupied or offered for occupancy in exchange for money or any other consideration must be registered with Louisville Metro Government. Failure to register is subject to a fine up to $100 per day per housing unit.
The registration calls for:
- Rental property owners to include the rental unit street address.
- List current contact information of the owner and managing operator.
- New owners to register within thirty days of any ownership transfer.
- Any change in contact information to be updated on the registry within thirty days of the change.
Visit this link to establish an account and access the registry, or to get detailed information and instructions on registry requirements. Registration is free and will be monitored by the staff of Develop Louisville. The need for the Rental Registry was prompted after concerns were raised by code enforcement inspectors, citing the difficulty in finding a person who was responsible for the problem properties. Currently, some listings have only a Post Office Box number or LLC as contacts in the event of a violation.
For more information call Ben Anderson at 574-4064.
Owners must register a physical address for contact information. A P.O. box is not acceptable.
