§ 121-1 Purpose.

The Township of Lehigh recognizes a need for registration of residential units within the Township in order to ensure appropriate identity of various residents of the Township for registration and taxation purposes. The Township recognizes that the most efficient system to provide for these rental occupants' registration is to require the landlord to file periodic notices with the Township identifying its residential lessees.

§ 121-2 Registration requirements.

No person shall hereafter occupy, allow to be occupied or let to another person for occupancy any residential rental unit within the Township of Lehigh unless said landlord/lessor notifies the Township within 30 days after said occupancy of the name, address and number of a person(s) occupying each specific unit. The registration shall contain the following minimum information:
A. 
Name, address and telephone number of the property owner;
B. 
Name, address and telephone number of the designated local property manager, if the property owner lives outside the Township and has a property manager;
C. 
The street address of the rental property; and
D. 
The name, address and place of employment of the tenant(s) and all other occupants of the unit who are over the age of 18 or employed.

§ 121-3 Time frames for registration. [1]

A registration for each residential unit shall be filed by January 30 of each calendar year and then throughout the year whenever there is a change of occupants as set forth above. The property owner shall notify the Township within 30 days of lease-letting or renting or any other change in occupancy of the property.
