It shall be unlawful to operate within the city any apartment house, rooming
house, two-family dwelling, or single rental unit without a current certificate of compliance
displayed in full
view in the lobby, vestibule or other prominent common area of the apartment house, rooming
house, two-family dwelling or single rental unit which is open to the public or to all occupants,
and if there be no such area then such
certificate of compliance shall be displayed in the
office of the manager or in each dwelling unit or rooming unit.
(b) It shall be unlawful for any person to lease
or sublease any apartment house,
rooming house, two-family dwelling or single rental unit without first providing to
the lessee or sublessee notice of the zoning district in which the property is located
and the applicable occupancy limitations under chapter 29. The notice shall either
be contained in the written lease or shall be on a zoning occupancy disclosure form
provided by the director and signed by the lessor and each lessee. All current
zoning occupancy disclosure forms and leases for the property shall be maintained
in the office of the manager.
(c) It shall be unlawful for any owner, operator,
agent or property manager of a
rental unit to fail to immediately exhibit, upon request by a police officer or city
inspector investigating any code violation, all lease, rental payment, tenant
information and the zoning occupancy disclosure form pertaining to the unit. No
person shall be found guilty of violating this subsection if the person demonstrates
to the city that the person met the disclosure requirements of this section at the time
of the alleged violation by producing the properly executed documentation within
seven (7) days of the date of the alleged violation.
