Compliance deadline nears for Toledo, OH, vacant property registration ordinance

Toledo, OH: The deadline for the vacant property registration ordinance goes into effect Mar 1.


The City’s vacant property registration ordinance had its timetable extended to Mar 1, and plans to begin taking action on delinquent properties shortly after the revised deadline.


The ordinance requires any vacant residential property in the City to be registered within 30 days of vacancy. A $200 fee is due at time of registration, as well as filling out a form listing current contact information for owners and parties responsible, as well as information about the property itself.


Failure to comply with the ordinance can result owners being served a Notice of Liability and guilty of a misdemeanor crime of the third degree (which carries a civil fine of $250).
