Archbald Borough Residential Rental Property Licensing
The Archbald Borough Codes Enforcement Office will, once again, be actively updating its current residential rental property unit licensing information. Mayor Shirley Barrett and Council remind owners of residential rental units that all Archbald Borough property owners renting residential units in the municipality need a current license for each residential rental unit, including single-family rental homes.
Licenses are issued for a three-year period and must be kept up to date. Prior to issuing a new license or renewing a current license, landlords are required to schedule an inspection of their premises. There can be no objects or debris obstructing access to electrical boxes, furnaces and water heaters. The outside of the dwelling should also be cleared of any trash or debris in order to avoid a violation notice.
Landlords may obtain a copy of the license application and/or a copy of the Ordinance regulating residential rental properties by downloading them from the Archbald Borough website at Forms & Ordinances, or at the Archbald Municipal Building, 400 Church Street, Archbald, PA. During regular business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Failure to comply with the requirements of the Ordinance can result in non-renewal of a license and possible magisterial charges and penalties for the violation.
Questions regarding the Ordinance and current enforcement activities can be directed to Mayor Shirley Barrett at 570-498-9398.
