What is the rental registry?

The rental registry is part of Ohio Revised Code 5323 and handled by the Lucas County Auditor. It applies to all residential rental properties in Toledo. This is not new, and most rentals are already registered. The City’s new ordinance piggybacks on the existing registry and provides enforcement under the Division of Code Enforcement.

What qualifies as a residential rental property?

Under the City ordinance, “Residential Rental Property” means any part of a structure being used or occupied as a private residence, including attached structures such as porches or stoops, occupied by any person or persons other than the property owner and/or members of the owner’s “Immediate Family” regardless of whether or not the owner occupies another portion of the structure.

What does the rental registry have to do with the lead ordinance?

Under the lead ordinance, residential rental properties built before 1978 and having 1-4 units must get a lead-safe certificate. The first step to get this certificate is to registering with Auditor's rental registry.
