Rental Registrations to Now Require a Verified Email Address

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Franklin County Auditor Michael Stinziano announced this week that online rental registrations will now require a verified email address that will enhance the security and accuracy of the property information.

It will also provide more accurate information and help prevent fraudulent registrations. Ohio law requires properties that are rentals be registered with the county auditor’s office.

“Verifying an email for rental registrations will ensure the Auditor’s office has secure, up-to-date information and is part of bringing the Auditor’s office into the 21st century with new ideas and initiatives,” Stinziano said. "This update will create an additional way for tenants to reach rental property owners."
