Anyone who owns rental property in the City of South Bend, which they do not personally occupy, are encouraged to register their properties with Code Enforcement. For your convenience, you can register online, or print the application below, fill it out, and mail it to Code Enforcement. If you choose to mail the application, there is a strict limit of 4 properties per owner that can be registered. If you have more than 4 properties you will need to complete the process online.
Please note, properties registered between September 1st and December 31st will be registered for the NEXT year. For example, if you register a property on September 15, 2018 that registration will be for the year 2019. There is no fee if registration is completed between September 1, 2018-December 31, 2018.
