Rental Inspection Ordinance: Factoryville Borough Council passed a rental inspection ordinance at their May 8, 2019 meeting, amended August 12, 2020. Applications should be completed for EACH UNIT within each building owned.  An addendum, signed by the landlord and tenants, is required for an inspection to occur. The addendum includes information about who is responsible for base care of the property including lawn, sidewalks, and trash as well as how many people are permitted on and in the property premises (Ordinance 2020-3, Section 7.2A). Furthermore, it is an agreement that the tenants will follow the listed ordinances already in place within the Borough and will allow reasonable inspections with the proper notice by the landlord. The paperwork necessary for a license to be issued is due six months prior to the expiration of the previous license. This allows time to schedule an inspection and remedy any issues that may need to be corrected. No license will be granted without a “pass” inspection. Any violation of this Ordinance may result in a fine of no less than $100 and no more than $1000 per rental unit, per day (Section 11.4, Ordinance 2020-3). For questions or concerns, please call the Borough Hall 570-945-7484 or email: manager@factoryville.org Be sure to read the ordinance and include all necessary information in the application.
