SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Earlier than the Shreveport Metropolis Council are three ordinances associated to establishing a rental dwelling unit registration program.

On the agenda of the Shreveport-Caddo Metropolitan Planning Fee’s assembly Nov. 3 have been amendments to Shreveport’s Unified Improvement Code, which was applied in Might 2017.

These adjustments would permit for a rental dwelling unit registration program that’s designed to assist determine drawback properties and absentee landlords and property homeowners.

This system is an initiative introduced forth by Shreveport Councilwoman Tabatha Taylor and Councilman John Nickelson. Within the presentation to the MPC, it was said that the council members “discovered that establishing a rental registration and security inspection program will defend the general public well being, security and welfare of tenants by encouraging the correct upkeep of residential rental housing.”

This system would have two parts: registration and complaint-driven security inspections.

If accredited:

  1. any tenant or aggrieved social gathering may report potential violations by contacting the MPC workplace and requesting an inspection of a unit to make sure compliance with rental housing requirements; and,
  2. nobody can be allowed to occupy, hire, sub-rent, lease, sublease, let or sublet property to a different individual until they’ve obtained a rental dwelling unit certificates of registration. Exemptions would come with rental dwellings in accommodations, motels, inns, mattress and breakfasts, single-room occupancy or boarding homes, short-term leases, RV parks, state or federal licensed hospitals, hospice, group care amenities, intermediate-care amenities, nursing houses, authorities entities, housing authority-owned and -operated properties and different related lodging.
  3. all homeowners of rental properties in Shreveport must pay $35 per unit for the preliminary registration then a $30 renewal charge every year. Failure to register would lead to a $70 wonderful.

A number of landlords spoke towards this system and the prices related to it when the Metropolis Council met Friday, Nov. 19.

“We’re going to should cross this on to the tenants,” stated Shawn Guilbault, a property proprietor. “A number of these tenants are already struggling to pay hire, so they will have a more durable time now to pay hire.

“So we are attempting to see how it will profit. We have already got property requirements which, to my understanding, does the identical factor.”

Taylor, who represents Metropolis Council District A, desires this system for town and stated it’s a matter of accountability.

“I’m going to talk particularly to my district. I’ve plenty of slum lords. I’ve taken two condominium complexes to court docket. No working water, sewage, deplorable situations. What we don’t have is a renter’s code and we have to have one.”

As introduced to and accredited by the MPC earlier this month, under are the proposed amendments to Shreveport’s Unified Improvement Code that will assist set up a rental dwelling unit registration program:

The MPC’s approval was essential earlier than Shreveport may proceed.

Now the difficulty is earlier than the Metropolis Council. This system will probably be up for a vote when the Metropolis Council meets Dec. 14.

This system, if accredited, can be administered by the MPC.
