Annual registration of Kansas City rental properties due Jan. 31
All owners of rental dwellings located in Kansas City, Mo., must renew or establish registration of their rental properties with the City of Kansas City, Mo., Neighborhood and Community Services Department for 2012 by Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2012. Annual registration of rental properties is part of the Rental Registration and Inspection Program established by the City Council with passage of ordinance No. 071046 in October 2007.
Owners can register rental properties through Jan. 31 without incurring a registration fee. However, failure to register a rental dwelling before Feb. 1 will result in the issuance of an administrative citation fine of $50. For each month (or portion thereof) that a rental dwelling is not registered, an additional $50 fee will be assessed. For example, a rental property not registered until August will be assessed a fine of $350. Registration is required on a calendar-year basis and expires each Nov. 30.
