Landlord Certification Program
B. Certified Landlords are recognized with a certificate suitable for display, indicating that they operate within a high standard. This is a clear way to demonstrate that one is a professional landlord to prospective tenants, their parents, the City, community and University.
C. PGPOA and the City plan to identify participants in an on-line registry, allowing others to verify that one is a Certified Landlord. This in turn will prompt others to look for members the next time they look for a property to rent.
After 11 years, Rent Stabilization is a part of the past as the College Park City Council voted at its June 17, 2014 Meeting by a 5-3 Decision to sunset the 2005 Ordinance.
New Recycling Law
Plastic bags of any sort are FORBIDDEN in the recycling bins in College Park according to City and PG County Law.
FINES WILL BE APPLIED!
Notify everyone residing at your rental property about this newly enforced law that has been in effect since July 2015. Notices have been placed on noncompliant homes, but there are still many offenders whose plastic bag trash is littering yards, sidewalks and streets because recycling collectors no longer pick it up.
The grace period on applying fines is over in early 2016. Spread the word and clean up your yards!
Landlords: Get Certified!
Email your request for a Landlord Certification Program packet to:
Lead Paint Registration Renewals due annually by December 31 to avoid fines.
