The city's Inspectional Services Department said today that it has extended the deadline for property owners to register their rental units with the city. The deadline, originally set for today, is now Aug. 31, 2013. A new city ordinance requires the annual registration of all private rental units and inspection of all "non-exempt" rental units to be conducted once every five years. The extension is intended "to accommodate some property owners" who have not yet registered.

Property owners can register their rental units online here. Property owners that do not have to a computer can pick up an application (paper form) from the ISD at Mass Ave., Boston 5th flr. or call to request to receive an application in the mail.
