Do you own rental property?
The City of Frisco adopted an ordinance mandating 'reporting requirements for owners of single family residential rental property' on December 15, 2009. The ordinance requires all single family property owners who rent out homes to register with the city. A 'single family property' includes townhomes and duplexes.
What does that mean for the property owner?
If you rent your property, you need to register it with the City of Frisco.
- * No fees to register.
* You do not need to register if it is a relative that you have living in the property.
* This has no tax implications. It will not raise your property taxes.
Why was the ordinance enacted?
Property owners are the ones ultimately responsible for the property. It is our goal to be able to notify property owners when there is an issue, so they have time to fix the problem.
