[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Supervisors of the Township of Raccoon 9-9-1974 by Ord. No. 7-74. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The following words when used in this chapter shall have the meaning ascribed to them in this section, except where the context clearly indicates or requires a different meaning:
- That person or persons who has the use of real estate of a lessor and is responsible for the giving of any type of consideration therefor but excluding those who are lessees for a period of less than 30 days.
- Any person who grants a lease or otherwise permits the use of his real estate or portion thereof for a consideration, monetary or otherwise.
- Any natural person, partnership, association, firm or corporation.
All lessors, within 30 days after the acquisition, rental or availability for rental of real estate, as the case may be, shall report to the Township Secretary in writing addressed to her at the Township office the number of parcels or units of real estate presently or hereafter rented and available for rental, a description (by address, number and/or some other meaningful method) of the said parcels or units, and the names of its lessees and other occupants at the time of such report, together with a designation as to which parcel or unit is occupied by each and the date of occupancy. The report may be a copy of the lease agreement if one is in existence.
Any change in the occupancy of real estate rented or leased or in the identity of the lessee from that, shown in the report of the lessor as required in § 136-2 hereof shall be reported by lessor to the Township Secretary within 10 days after such change. It is intended hereby that lessors shall report a new lease or a lessee who rents or leases a different parcel or unit of lessor's real estate and when a parcel or unit of their real estate becomes vacant.
The Township Secretary may prepare a form report entitled "Status of Occupancy Report" which form report may require that information set forth above and such other pertinent information that the Board by resolution may direct the Township Secretary to incorporate into the said report form. The failure to have such report forms, however, shall not excuse the obligation of lessors to provide the information required herein. The report may be filed by presenting to the Township Secretary a copy of any lease agreement which may be in effect or a copy of any other form that the lessor may be required to submit to any other agency concerning tenants.
