Lebanon Cracks down on Landlords

Lebanon Code Administration is cracking down on landlords who aren’t following the rules, like making sure that utilities are in the name of the tenants, and also making sure that properties are up to code, without nuisance violations. Code Administrator Joe Berkich said part of that means that they will hold the landlords accountable for the state of the property they own..

For landlords who own multiple properties and don’t take care of them, the fines can add up to hundreds of dollars. Also if they fail to answer the compliance letter, and fail to show up to court with a citation it will cost even more.
