Logan landlord license ordinance to take effect July 1

Logan landlords must have a landlord business license by July 1, when the ordinance will officially take effect, said Jay Nielson, director of Community Development. The licensing ordinance was created to put landlords on equal ground with other business owners, require rentals to be fit for renting, create a way for problems in rental dwellings to be fixed timely and to make sure rentals are compliant with building codes, according to the ordinance. Inspections will be complant-driven, Nielson said. Complaints can be made at www.loganutah.org under the “Neighborhood Complaint” option. The license costs $50 per year. However, this cost can be cut to $10 per year for two years if the landlord chooses to participate in a good landlord class. Currently, the Box Elder County Landlord Association and the Utah Apartment Association provide good landlord courses for $40 that require pre-registration. Nielson said these two course providers have already sent information about trainning sessions by mail to all known landlords in the area. For information on the courses and to read more about the ordinance, such as grandfathering and zoning, visit www.loganutah.org.
