The City of Piqua recognizes the need to preserve and promote the quality of existing housing and to provide for safe and sanitary housing conditions for residential tenants. In furtherance of this objective, a Rental Registration Program has been proposed.
The Rental Registration Program requires all owners of rental dwellings in the city to obtain a license annually for each rental dwelling unit. Rental dwelling units must be inspected by the City of Piqua to ensure compliance with any applicable local, state and federal laws and regulations at the initial time of application, and not less than once every three years following the initial inspection, and at each change of occupancy, and at each change of ownership (as deemed necessary and practicable by the Code Official).
A draft of the proposed ordinance and implementation schedule is available at https://piquaoh.org/1567/Rental-Registration-Program or can be secured from the City of Piqua Development Department. Also posted to is a copy of the Rental Registration Program presentation provided at the City Commission work session on April 24, 2023.
