Bill 44-14, Landlord-Tenant Relations - Licensing of Rental
Housing - Common Ownership Community Fees
Bill 44-14, Landlord-Tenant Relations - Licensing of Rental Housing - Common
Ownership Community Fees, sponsored by Council Vice President Leventhal and
Councilmembers Floreen and Branson, was introduced on September 23, 2014. A Planning,
Housing and Economic Development Committee worksession will be scheduled at a later date.
Bill 44-14 would require an owner of a dwelling unit in a common ownership community
to certify payment of common ownership community fees in order to receive a rental housing
license for the unit.
would also authorize the Director of Housing and Community Affairs to
deny, suspend, revoke, or refuse to renew a rental housing license for a dwelling unit in a
common ownership community if the owner fails to pay the common ownership community fees
due for the unit. Although the Bill would not replace the need for a common ownership
community to use the Courts to collect unpaid fees, the Bill would add an additional tool to
encourage a unit owner to pay these fees.
