The city of Charlotte is now requiring landlords to register all their properties with the police department. Those that don't face a penalty. Also, landlords with properties located in troubled areas (locations with top 4 percent in police phone calls) can be charged a $350 fee for SFHs and up to $1,300 for large apartment complexes.
Are these ordinances prevalent in other cities? I've never heard about an ordinance like this and would like to hear others thoughts on the subject.
