City of Plano Considering Home Rental Registration and Inspection Program

About 40 REALTORS® from the Collin County Association of REALTORS® (CCAR) attended a City Council Budget Meeting in Plano this morning to express our concerns about a proposed registration and inspection program for single family homes being leased within the city.

The Mayor and the City Council members were very receptive to our concerns that this was a “solution looking for a problem” and about private property rights. One Council Member stated, “…it does not seem fair to put a program in-place that impacts the 99 percent of owners who take good care of their rental homes to go after the 1 percent who do not…”

After listening to CCAR members and some discussion, the Council removed the proposal from the 2013 budget.
