Rental Registration       

If you own residential real estate and you don't reside in the property AND you are renting the property to someone, this law does apply to you and you should file a rental registration. It's the law and failure to register may subject you to fines.

Generally speaking, if you own property, don’t live in it, and receive compensation from others
who do live in it – there is a good chance HB 294 applies to you and you should read and file
the enclosed Lucas County Rental Registration Form. If you are not certain – you should consult
your attorney or contact our office.
