Harriman may try a new tactic in addressing what officials refer to as slum lords renting out property in disrepair.
Harriman Treasurer Charles Kerley suggested a policy in which the city would be able to go into the rental property and clear it for habitation before a landlord can rent a piece of property.
“You can’t go in and charge a fee to re-rent,” Kerley said. “You have to have an inspection fee.”
Kerley said he thinks it might go a long way toward stopping landlords from renting substandard property.
