A rental license must be obtained prior to the residential or commercial rental of any property in the township and zoning approval is required for any kind of conversions. The fee for the rental license is listed on the Lower Alsace Township Fee Schedule and is dependent on the type of structure. These three year licenses will only be issued following a successful inspection by a Township Code Official. In addition to the license, the township also requires a tenant listing for all occupants over 18 years of age in any rental unit as well as updates to that list when tenants change. Failure to obtain a rental license or to report any change in tenancy could result in fines and penalties.
