   (Added by Ord. No. 177,901, Eff. 9/29/06.)
 
   If a landlord desires to offer for rent or lease a rental unit which was the subject of a Notice of Intent to Withdraw pursuant to the provisions of Subsection A. of Section 151.23, the following regulations apply:
 
   A.   If a rental unit that was removed from rental housing use pursuant to the provisions of Section 151.23 is offered for rent or lease during either:
 
   1.   the five-year period after the Notice of Intent to Withdraw the accommodations is filed with the Department pursuant to Section 151.23, whether or not the Notice of Intent is rescinded or the withdrawal of the accommodations is completed pursuant to the Notice of Intent; or
 
   2.   the five-year period after the accommodations are withdrawn;
 
then the accommodations shall be offered and rented or leased at the lawful rent in effect at the time any Notice of Intent to Withdraw the accommodations was filed with the Department, plus annual adjustments available under Section 151.06 of this article.
 
   B.   Subsection A. of this section shall prevail over any conflicting provision of law authorizing the landlord to establish the rental rate upon the initial hiring of the rental unit.
 
   C.   If a landlord offers for rent or lease a rental unit that was the subject of a Notice of Intent to Withdraw pursuant to the provisions of Subsection A. of Section 151.23, irrespective of whether a Notice of Intention to Re-Rent Withdrawn Accommodations has been filed with the Department, and the landlord later wishes to recommence the withdrawal of the rental unit, the landlord must file a new Notice of Intent to Withdraw and comply with all requirements pursuant to Sections 151.09 G. and 151.23 through 151.28 of this Code.  (Added by Ord.
