Prince George's County Enacts New Rental Management Penalties
LEGISLATIVE ALERT - December 9, 2015
Mike Graziano, Executive Vice President

The County Council recently passed legislation imposing a drastically high penalty for operating a rental unit without the proper license. CB 85-15 imposes a $1,000 per month penalty for each month, or portion thereof, where a rental property was operated without a license or operated under an expired license.

Rental Licenses are not transferrable, as such; purchasers of occupied rental units have 30 days following settlement to obtain a rental license. The new law applies to properties in unincorporated areas. If the property is located within the boundaries of a municipality and the municipality enforces their own rental license requirement, the County penalty would not apply. However, the municipality may impose a penalty. If the municipality does not have a rental license requirement the County license mandate applies.
