Rockford rolls out landlord registry website

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Rockford officials gathered Wednesday to officially introduce the online landlord registry.

The goal of the registry is to help reduce nuisances at residential rental properties by increasing communication between landlords and the City of Rockford.

Landlords who register will get automatic emails whenever a police or fire incident occurs at one of their properties. In the future, emails on code violations will also be sent out.

Landlords must sign up for the registry by law, and the deadline to do so is March 1, 2014.You will need your property address, the number of units, and the name, address, email address, and telephone numbers of the property owner and property manager or custodian.

You can sign up at rentalregistry.rockfordil.gov. You can also read the ordinance requiring the registry at rockfordil.gov.
