Landlord Registration

If you are a landlord in the Township of Piscataway, you must:

1. Provide a new landlord registration every year to the MCCO Office when renting out property, along with an MCCO Rental Property Application each time tenants change.

2. Obtain a Lead Safe Certificate after a visual inspection of any rental property. This is required by the State's Lead Safe Act and regulated by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA). The inspection must be done either by the Township or a state-approved contractor. For a Township inspection, please complete the Lead Safe Inspection Request Form and mail it to the MCCO Office (full address below) or place it in the drop box outside of the Township Public Works Center.
