Logan Landlord license applications increase

LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Landlords in Logan were a little slow to catch on to a new law that requires licenses to rent out property.In the month since the law took effect on July 1, the number of applicants increased from about 100 to more than 900. But with 2,200 estimated landlords in the city, less than half have applied for the new licenses.City licensing manager James Olson says property owners who have created rental units in houses without city permission and those who are allowing too many people to share units are likely among the holdouts.Identifying overcrowded houses is among the city’s reasons for the new law.Olson says the city will ask unlicensed landlords to get licensed or be fined.
