                          A rental property is one where any person other than the owner resides in a dwelling or
                          dwelling unit, whether or not related to the owner of the property.
                          Each rental property is subject to the minimum property maintenance code standards such as
                          handrails, proper light and ventilation, and thermal and sanitary maintenance, as well as being
                          compliant with all other Township codes such as Nuisance (§165, Article I).
                          Every two years each rental unit and the premises surrounding the rental unit will be inspected

        by January 31 of each year by the property owner. This form must be accompanied by the per-unit fee of $200. If
        application for license is filed after January 31, a late fee of $100 /per unit is added to the annual license fee. It is
        the rental property owner’s responsibility to file completed license applications for each rental unit prior to the
        due date each year. Reminder notices will not be sent to rental unit owners.
