It shall state the name and address of the applicant, the nature and extent of his or her interest in the building for which the license is required, the name and address of the owner of the building, the location of the building, the number of dwelling units and any other information required by the Building Official. Upon receipt of an application for a housing license, the Building and Zoning Department requires an inspection of the rental property and shall not be valid beyond the last day of the twelfth month following the date of issuance, unless renewed prior thereto in the same manner as required for issuance of the original housing license. The Code Official will keep copies of all application and housing licenses on files. If upon inspection of the rental unit it is determined that violation of this chapter exists, notice of the violation shall be made to the owner of the property. The owner or agent shall obtain the proper permits as required by the Building Code to correct the noted violations. No housing license shall be issued until the violations have been corrected and the repairs inspected and approved. The Code Official can also revoke a housing license if the applicant makes any false statements, or if the owner, agent or person in charge of a structure refuses to comply with any provisions. No housing license for single-family dwellings (one-two family dwelling) shall be required for lawful structures occupied by the owner(s) or immediate family member (parent, sibling, grandparent) as the owner’s principal residence. Within six months of not obtaining a housing license a reminder will be sent out to apply on or before 21 days are up. If the owner fails to do so, an undetermined fee will be applied and/or court action. The application for the housing license will cost $50.00 non-refundable for each one or two family dwellings per year.

Notes: It is up to landlord, if they want to keep utilities in their names that is fine, they can also have utilities in tenant’s name. Tenant may need to show proof of residency only if there is an outstanding balance owed. The security deposit is determined on roughly how much the property’s usage will be. Security deposit can be added to first month’s bill and if switched into tenant’s name, within a year the security deposit will be transferred back by check. Questions that are asked when transferring a company’s utilities: Need address of the company, property name/company name, tax identification number (if you are transferring an individual’s utilities and not a company, you will need their social security number), credit check done on company name, what is the primary source of heat? Is the water heater gas or electric? They will allow you to enter a different mailing address for the bill to be sent to. Multiple bills may be sent out at no extra cost. If utilities are in the tenant’s name, the tenant must request this otherwise, we will nor will the landlord be able to have access to bill. Change of service cannot be faxed, person must call in themselves. We can call on a person’s behalf only if we have verification information so it is good to get the client’s social security number. Ohio Edison sends bills every month as well, they attempt to take the meter reading every month.
Notes: This is also the same as U-Verse. This service can be put into the tenant’s name. This is done by a ‘Name of Change Responsibility’ form. The company MUST speak with person who is having the service installed. There is a credit check done, however, it is very rare that a security deposit will be required. Only required in extreme cases where the person owes hundreds to the company. The person connecting the service will need to provide name, date of birth and social security number.If the service is initially in the landlord’s name, the landlord must call AT&T, let them know that there will be a change of ownership of the account, then the tenant must call and provide information. The switch of service from landlord to tenant is instant as of the tenant calling. The information cannot be faxed and a Property Management Agreement is not acceptable. Also, this company does not utilize multiple billing in anyway, only the owner of the account can receive information or change information on the account. The bill will come out monthly on the date that service has commenced.

Notes: Utility must be in the landlord’s name if it is a single meter property, if there are multiple meters the tenant may then have the utility in their name. Proof of tenancy is only required if there is an outstanding balance or if it is suspected that one of the persons in the home owes the utility company or has committed Gas theft. Proof of tenancy would be id and lease documents. If you are starting or transferring service to five or more properties, you must fax information to RESEARCH AND RESOLUTION DEPARTMENT. The information they require are the business name, tax number (if you are not transferring a company, you will need the individual’s social security number), name of person responsible for the account, number of contact person, address to send the bill to, contact person and number in the case that an appointment for hook up needs to be scheduled. There is only one billing address allowed, however, a landlord can have a notification set up if the property is scheduled to have the gas disconnected or if the tenant has scheduled to have the gas turned off. A Property Management Agreement between the landlord and us is acceptable to make changes to service. Meters are read monthly and billing is done monthly, unless there has been a transfer of service in the middle of a billing cycle.

I just rented a home from Realty Trust, which I love…. Glenn is AWESOME! He was very professional, fast and prompt. He went above and beyond by repairing something that wasn’t on the current work order. Not many folks offer that type of customer service these days and I appreciate it.
What sold me on Realty Trust was their marketing system for securing new tenants. What has kept me loyal as a client has been their attention to my properties, treating them as if they were their own, and their exceptional service.
