Rental Registry

data.buffalony.gov | Last Updated 20 Feb 2020

The Rental Registration Program was implemented in January 2005 to help identify problem properties and absentee landlords. It is used to assist code enforcement efforts to improve the quality of life for tenants and neighbors of rental dwellings. The Rental Registration Office, within the Department of Permit and Inspection Services, is responsible for registering all non-owner occupied single and two-family homes. Some three-family and mixed-use dwellings also fall under the purview of the Rental Registration legislation. The ordinance applies to units whether or not they are occupied. Should you have any additional questions or need additional assistance, please contact the Department of Permit and Inspection Services Rental Registration Office, Program Director, Sam Fanara at 716-851-6538 or Mike Donovan at 716-851-4267.
