Class aimed at curbing illegal activity at rental properties

The Peachtree City Developmental Services Division will present a landlord training seminar on Friday, January 30, 2009, from 1 – 4:30 p.m. at City Hall.

This seminar is for owners of rental property, with a focus on keeping Peachtree City rental units safe and free of illegal activity.

Peachtree City Senior Code Enforcement Officer Tami Babb said, “We have such a high focus on the quality of our neighborhoods in Peachtree City that a session like this is very important.”  Babb continued, “Lack of building maintenance, destruction of property, and drug activity contribute to neighborhood decay and end up costing more for the landlord. There are accessible, legitimate techniques that can stop the spread of illegal activity and property damage at rental properties.”

Session one of the training program is designed for rental property owners of 1- and 2-family dwellings who own and manage their own properties. The seminar will cover such issues as landlord/tenant law, screening applicants, property maintenance regulations, leases, the role of the police, crisis resolutions, and evictions.

In addition to Peachtree City Code Enforcement, the Peachtree City Police Department, the Fayette County Magistrate Office and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs will make presentations at the class.

 The seminar is free of charge to Peachtree City rental property owners, but participants must pre-register. Registration forms are available at the Developmental Services Division Office, 153 Willowbend Road (downstairs at City Hall) and on the City’s web site,

The deadline to register for the January 30 seminar is January 16, 2009.

You would think that by now P.T.C code enforcement, would do its job to begin with, and enforce the laws already at its disposal. HOLD SLUMLORDS, EXCUSE ME.. LANDLORDS RESPONSIBLE FOR TENANTS ACTIONS, JUST LIKE MOST GOVERNMENTS DO ALREADY. Most of us care about our properties, and live in the same community as well, when i recieve complaints from neighbors of my properties or police, as is procedure in most counties I:E clayton. Of inappropriate actions or activities, i send notice in person. and make it clear that if i have to come out one more time they will be out. without notice... In closing if people would report illegal activity in the first place in theyre community the problem would take care of itself...GOD BLESS
