In an effort to assist the Evansville Police Department in promptly contacting owners of rental property within the city limits, the Evansville City Council, the Police Department, and landlords and tenants worked together to create a registry of accurate owner contact information.

On Wednesday, February 27, 2013, the Evansville City Council unanimously passed Ordinance G-2013-3 (Amended). A copy of the ordinance is available below by clicking the appropriate link to help answer any questions you may have.

Annually, all single-dwelling and/or multi-dwelling rental property owners MUST complete and submit this form to the Evansville-Vanderburgh County Building Commission Office. There is NO COST to register or submit this form. However, to avoid any possible late fees, the form must be submitted by the deadline below.
