City of Princeton - Rental Compliance

The City of Princeton has implemented a Rental Compliance Program (Article 1752) and a Vacant Building Registry (Article 1800). Both of these programs were approved by city council and are not part of the City Code.

Rental Compliance and the Vacant Building Registry was approved by city council on June 11th, 2018, becoming effective 60 days thereafter.

  • Property Owners with Residential Rentals:  Residential Rentals include houses, apartments, motels, hotels, mobile homes, townhouses, etc. Each owner is required to register their units with the city and pay appropriate registrations fees. Inspections will then be conducted by appointment with the landlord and tenant to ensure compliance with the emphasis on safety and property maintenance city codes. Owner occupied residences and businesses are not included in the Rental Compliance Program. Rent to own and land contract agreements must be registered by the party with a deed or deed of trust.

  • Property Owners with Vacant Buildings: Owners with both commercial and residential buildings are required to register their buildings with the city and pay the appropriate registration fees. Inspections will then be conducted by appointment with the property owner to ensure compliance with the emphasis on safety and property maintenance city codes, and to ensure compliance with the emphasis on securing the building for safety and providing repairs to prevent unsafe structures and blighting.
