(A) The owner of a building that is vacant and abandoned shall register the property with the city's Code Enforcement Officer upon receipt of an order for registration. Registration shall be on a form provided by the Code Enforcement Officer, shall be verified under the penalties of perjury, and shall include the following information:
(1) The street address of the property;
(2) The names, addresses, and telephone numbers of all persons or entities which hold an ownership, land contract, mortgage, or other lien interesting the property, and all beneficiaries of any land trust which owns the property;
(3) A copy of the most recently executed deed used to transfer title to the property and the most recently prepared sales disclosure form, if the disclosure form is reasonably available from the owner;
(4) The names, residential and business addresses, and telephone numbers of the property manager;
(5) The names and addresses of all persons or entities which hold a lien interest or a substantial property interest in the property;
(6) The names, addresses, and telephone numbers of the insurance agent and the carrier providing insurance coverage for the property as required by this chapter; and
(7) The owner's plan for maintenance and repair of the property, including the time within which the owner anticipates completion of all repairs necessary to bring the property into compliance with all property maintenance codes.
(a) However, the owner's statement of plan does not relieve the owner of any orders issued pursuant to the Unsafe Building Law or of any obligations imposed by statute, ordinance or regulation governing the maintenance of property.
(b) The city's receipt of a plan does not constitute approval of the owner's plan or of any violation of property maintenance standards.
(B) The owner is responsible for providing an updated registration form to the Code Enforcement Officer within five business days of any change of ownership or any information provided by the registration. The failure of the owner to provide such updated information within five business days of any change is a violation of this section.
