Rental Registration & Inspection

On April 01, 2010, the Wilmer City Council passed Ordinance No. 10-0401A recognizing the need for an organized inspection program of residential rental units within the city in order to insure rental units meet city and state safety, health, fire and zoning codes and to provide a more efficient system for compelling both absentee and local landlords to correct violations and to maintain rental properties within the city.

No person shall rent or occupy any dwelling subject to this article without having a valid, current certificate of occupancy for the dwelling. The certificate of occupancy issued pursuant to this article shall expire every two (2) years from the date of the biennial inspection.

Any property found to be in violation of this article is hereby declared to be a nuisance. In addition to any other relief provided by Ordinance No. 10-401A, the city attorney may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for an injunction to prohibit the continuation of any violation.
