CODE | NEW LAWS | LAW INDEX

[HISTORY: Adopted by the Borough Council of the Borough of Stockertown as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]


§ 184-1 Filing of certification required.

Every owner of real estate within the Borough of Stockertown, Northampton County, Pennsylvania, who rents or leases any parcel of real estate, in whole or in part, shall file with the Secretary of the Borough a certification of the names and addresses of all tenants. This certification shall be filed in such format as shall be designated by the Borough Secretary and shall be submitted to the Borough Secretary on or before January 1, 2002, and thereafter within 10 days of any change in tenants.

§ 184-2 Trigger for filing requirement.

The fact that the owner of real estate rents or leases any property for minimal or no rent to another person shall not exclude the filing requirement as set forth above. It is the date of the execution of the lease, and not actual occupancy, that triggers the owner's obligations as set forth in this article. In the event there is no written lease, then actual occupancy by the tenant shall trigger the owner's obligation as set forth herein.

§ 184-3 Violations and penalties.

Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. I).

Every owner of real estate who fails to so comply with the requirements of this article shall, upon conviction, be guilty of a summary offense and be liable for a fine not exceeding $600, plus court costs, and, in default of payment of such fine and costs, imprisonment for a term not exceeding 30 days. For the purpose of this article, every day that an owner of real estate is late in filing said certified list as required above shall constitute a separate offense.
