Should? The people should not have to put up with this sort of thing from their local government.

They don't.

You can sell and move.

That being said, I won't be registering my properties until I get some official notice.

Its really a good thing for the community . You see we have laws now that prohibit offering refuge to criminals. If a landlord just wants his rent on time and doesn't want to be responsible this new law WILL MAKE HIM RESPONSIBLE...Think of it of stopping someone from putting a family of foxes right in the middle of a chicken farm and then acting like they have nothing to do with the killed chickens.

Wrong. We can choose to not rent to those with a criminal history but there is no law preventing it. Whoever told you that is wrong.

Now, landlords are not supposed to rent to people when they know the property will be used for the commission of crimes, but that's a whole different story. And this new ordinance won't do a thing except for lead to higher rental prices when the registration comes with fees. Landlords will pass these costs on. Of that you can be certain.

Until CharMeck pays my mortgages or taxes they can kiss my a$$. I'm not registering anything with them & they aren't welcome on my properties. Just more socialistic police-state BS. Only cowards will comply.

I guess you don't have a business license since they didn't give you some official notice that you needed one.

So that would make that the responsibility of LL's? Why in the world do people buy into government controls?
It's my impression that you think by a LL registering his building with the police ( not the Dept of Building which is standard procedure in most cities that know what they are doing) you will prevent "flop houses".

Old definition of "flop house"= bunch of alcoholics or crack heads eating off a hot plate and smoking cigs found in the road . New definition= sharing a house. Renting a bedroom. Cutting costs in a difficult economic crisis.
The police dept does not stop that practice. Perhaps the building dept (code violation) IF someone reports it.

In addition, bringing to the forefront that investors will pay a "fee" to buy a prop area in a high crime area. will be shot down by the courts in a minute and the image it will leave behind for future investor in the Clt market won't be pretty.

I'm not a business. I just happen to own a few houses. No business license is required if the owner is the one doing the renting out.

I figured you would know that already since you work for the county.

Not a business? That's crazy. You might not be a business that requires a priv. license but you're a business.

As far as the second paragraph goes, is that sarcasm? Or ignorance? Or are you trying to pick a fight?

You mad bro?

That's the second time I've seen someone state AS A FACT IN TOTAL IGNORANCE who my employer is.

That reminds me of this kid that said he wouldn't argue with me on YouTube because I'm a girl. If you're old enough to own houses I suppose that you're not a kid.

If you want to know who I work for then ask. Otherwise this really makes you look r*.
