How to Register Your Property

The Baltimore City Code, Article 13, Subtitle 4-2, requires every owner of a non-owner occupied dwelling unit, "whether occupied or vacant, whether it is producing revenue or not producing revenue, whether habitable or not habitable," to file a registration statement with the Housing Commissioner.

This must be done within 10 days of any transfer of the property and every January 1st thereafter.
