On July 1, 2016, the North Carolina General Assembly passed Senate Bill 326. SB 326 modifies local government law regarding the inspection of residential buildings. The bill includes provisions that deal with reasonable cause for inspection, property permits, and allowing the sheriff and city police to assist a landlord in addressing crimes committed on private property. This bill also eliminated the ability of municipalities to operate a rental dwelling registration program as of January 1, 2017. Therefore, as of January 1, 2017 the City of Raleigh and the Town of Garner Rental Dwelling Registration program will be dissolved. Renewal notices will not be mailed out in February 2017.
Landlords, please remember to cancel any automatic bill pay schedules you may have set up with your bank for the rental dwelling registration program.
