Baltimore City's New Rental Licensing Law Ben Frederick

1. The new system does not eliminate the annual registration fee (which remains unchanged at $30 per dwelling unit for one-family and two-family houses, and $35 per dwelling unit for buildings with more than 2 units). The new system differentiates “registration”, which is done annually, and “licensing”. The “License” will last 3 years for “good” landlords; defined as one who gets violation notices corrected within 60 days of their issuance. The License will last 2 years if the landlord gets violation notices corrected within 90 days of their issuance. Landlords are “bad” if they take more than 90 days to correct housing, building, and fire code violations and, therefore, must get their units inspected every year. “Bad” landlords on one-year licenses must pay an additional $15 per unit registration fee. The system is designed to reward “good” landlords who keep their properties in good repair and respond promptly to violation notices.

Collateral damage as Baltimore overhauls its rental

1. As we raise this issue, we must applaud the bill’s sponsor, Councilman Bill Henry, and the Administration, for moving this legislation forward with purpose and speed. Despite important flaws, it leaves behind decades of policy inaction. And yet, while the bill provides plenty to like for landlords and the city Housing department, it offers no immediate relief for renters, especially in the short term, before it has its intended effect of weeding out the worst landlord offenders. Under the provisions of the new law, landlords who fix violations promptly and pass inspection are rewarded with less frequent inspections — only once every three years. Problematic property owners with more code violations will receive licenses that require inspections annually, or every two years. The landlords will be inspected not by city employees, but by private, state-licensed home inspectors a shaky proposition. These inspectors are only accountable to the people who are paying them — the landlords —...
