Residential Rental Registration and Inspection Program

ATTENTION ALL RESIDENTIAL RENTAL OWNERS

Senate Bill No. 607 of November 2013 requires all residential multifamily and apartment buildings who use fossil fuel-buring heater or appliances or have an attached garage to install centrally located in the vicinity of sleeping rooms and the heater room carbon monoxide detectors within 18 months of notice. Occupants are required to test and maintain batteries in such devices.

Since 1991, owners of rental properties have been required to regularly report the names of tenants to the Borough Office. This program has yielded only moderate results, prompting the adoption of Souderton Borough Council Ordinance No 647 on October 4, 2004, which completely revamps the reporting process for rental properties.

The goal and objective of this new comprehensive program is to provide for the equitable distribution of tax levies; protect and promote health, safety and welfare of the residents and particularly the occupants of rental units; encourage owners and tenants of rental units to maintain such units in a well maintained, safe and sanitary condition and develop and maintain a comprehensive data base of information and contacts to better respond to police, fire and medical emergencies that may occur within rental properties.

Since 2004 the Borough has required every owner of rental property to annually file registration information with the Borough, including tenant information and contact information. This data is maintained by the Code Enforcement Officer and Police for purposes of making contacts in emergency situations. Tenant information will also be shared with the local tax collectors. To help defray administrative expenses, there is an annual registration fee to register a rental property, payable to Souderton Borough, which should be enclosed with the registration form. Upon submission of the required information, the Code Enforcement Officer will issue a Certificate of Occupancy for display in a common area of the building.

Regulations also require periodic inspections of all rental units to verify compliance with life and safety issues and the Property Maintenance Code. The inspections will occur every three to four years. The inspection schedule is broken down by the three wards in Souderton Borough.

We hope that this program will be beneficial for all parties involved. Please feel free to contact our office at 215-723-4371 between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm if you should have any questions or require assistance in completing a rental registration form. This form can be Fax to 215-723-5569 emailed to laura@soudertonborough.org or dropped off at office located 31 W Summit St Souderton PA.

The Borough is to be notified of any changes to tenants as they are moving in or out. This helps the Police and Tax Collector know who is living in the Borough.

Selling Your Home?

A Use and Occupancy Permit is required prior to the sale of residential or commercial properties. The purpose of this permit is to verify that the current or proposed use of the property complies with Zoning and Building Codes.  This form can be found here on the website under Forms and Use and Occupancy. Fee for this is $100.00. The paperwork should be submitted to our office at least 30 days before settlement. An inspection of your property is required and should be completed 30 days prior to the scheduled settlement to provide time to address any problems. Of particular concern is the condition of curb and sidewalk and the closure of cellar drains.

Please put in writing that you are requesting a sewer cert. With this you will get the outstanding balance for Sewer and Trash.  This can be sent in with the U&O. There is a $25.00 fee for the Certification for Trash and $25.00 fee for the Certification for Sewer. These should be sent to Souderton Borough Attn: Maryjane 31 W Summit ST Souderton PA 18964.  We will need three separate checks.

Also please make sure you are contacting North Penn Water to let them know of the settlement date.

We will send all paperwork the day before settlement to the contact information on the U & O Form.

Sewer Bills

The amount of your sewer bill is based on the number of residential or commercial units on your property and the volume of water consumption as metered by the North Penn Water Authority. Excessive water consumption caused by watering lawns, washing cars and driveways, or leaking plumbing fixtures will be reflected in higher sewer bills.

Payments may be made by mail or in person at the Borough Office between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays. The Borough accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover and debit cards. In December of 2016 there will be a fee of 2.45% Min of $3.00 for every card used at the Borough. The Borough had been absorbing all of the fees for years and with the new processer Munici-pay they now retain the processing fee. Please see the online bill pay site for more information on credit card payments.

Payments after hours can be deposited in the drop box located in the front vestibule of the Municipal Building.
