In 2002 the Maplewood Township Committee adopted the rental Registration Ordinance. This regulation requires that all rental property used for residential purposes be registered and inspected each year. This includes:
- All apartment buildings
- Family dwellings occupied by family members
- Family rentals
There is an exemption from the fee for seniors and owner-occupied family residences, but all must be registered and the exemption form returned. Failure to return the exemption form, if it is applicable, makes the owner responsible for the fee as well as the inspection.
Rental Registration and the owner affidavit forms are mailed in December each year. All registration must be completed no later than March 1.
The fee for each living unit is $50, unless exempt.
For more information or questions, please contact the Building Department at (973) 762-8120 ext. 5601 or 3703.
