As stated in our standard property management agreement, property owners are responsible for things like property taxes, HOA dues, mortgage payments. Landlord Registration is no different. The reason for this policy is that property owners will sometimes take actions that create risk of trouble in these matters. For example, in the past we've had property owners who have failed to pay the HOA dues. No bill ever came to us and eventually the HOA brought a small claims action against the property owner. We were completely unaware of this issue until the lawsuit was filed. That property owner felt that it was our duty to pay the HOA dues but that had never been previously discussed and we never received an invoice. We can't follow up with every HOA of every property that we manage to check if the HOA dues have been paid each year.
However, as a service to our clients we are happy to do the work to get your properties registered. Our fee is $25 per registration session plus $5 per property in addition to the $5 registration fee due to the city of Indianapolis. Please note that you do not have to use our service. You can perform the registrationn on your own using the links above.
Beginning January 1, 2015 as part of the Indianapolis Landlord Registration Program, all owners or landlords of residential rental units located within Indianapolis city limits will be required to register the properties with the City of Indianapolis Department of Code Enforcement (DCE). Please continue reading for important information on this new program.
Landlord Registration Enrollment: The initial registration period will end March 31, 2015. There will be no enforcement activities during the first three months of the program. Rental properties in excluded cities (Beech Grove, Lawrence, Southport and Speedway) are exempt from the registration.
Accessing the Landlord Registration Form: The registration form is available online through DCE’s Citizen Access Portal . Applicants must create a portal user account to access the landlord registration form. Applicants may also register at a kiosk available to the public in the DCE Lobby (1200 S. Madison Ave).
Completing the Landlord Registration: The property owner or a designated property management company can complete the registration form. An individual who owns multiple rental properties may register all properties together and pay one registration fee of $5. A property management company who represents multiple owners can register for the property owners but must complete a separate registration form for each owner.
Required Information for the Landlord Registration: Please note applicants need to enter only the parcel number (not the rental property address). The property address information will be auto populated using the parcel number information. To assist with the registration process, below is the information needed to complete the registration:
Landlord Registration Fee: Paying the registration fee is the final step of the process before submitting the registration form. Applicants can pay the $5 registration fee with an eCheck or credit card. The payment service is provided by a third-party vendor working in partnership with the City.
Viewing the Landlord Registration: Beginning January 1, 2015, the public can access the landlord registration list at DCE’s Citizen Access Portal.
Renewing the Annual Registration in 2016: DCE will provide information on the renewal process in 2015. The annual renewal process will require minimal action from registered landlords.
