A rental property is considered, any dwelling, including but not limited to a house, townhouse, row house, duplex, twin, apartment, condominium, rooming house or mobile home, and any building containing any such units, from which the owner derives income or any other consideration from persons residing at such dwelling, as evidenced by a written or oral contract, lease, sublease or agreement. A rental property has an occupancy that occurs for a period of 30 days or more.
All owners of rental properties in the Borough of Conshohocken are required to submit a rental application, on or before April 15 of each calendar year, for the issuance of a residential rental license permit. A separate application is required for each rental property. Application renewals will need to be completed each year. At the time of application, submit all applicable fees; provide a list of tenants; and a completed Borough earned income tax form or an affidavit attesting to the fact that the tenant is not employed. The tenant list shall be updated any time that a change of tenant occurs during the term of the residential rental license permit. Failure to update the tenant list will constitute a violation. Every application will have an initial property inspection completed by the Borough’s Rental Property Inspector. Bi-annual inspections will be conducted thereafter. Residential rental properties in the Borough of Conshohocken are required to have house numbers installed and maintained on the front and rear of dwelling structures used for residential rental unit(s).
