ANNAPOLIS -- Senior citizens in Washington County and landlords of all ages could receive some financial relief if state lawmakers approve legislation that would cap and defer property tax increases. Washington County's delegation to the Maryland General Assembly has sponsored a bill that would freeze property tax increases for those who are 65 years of age and older and defer payment on any such increases until after the homeowner's death. The amount of the tax increases the homeowner would have paid if not enrolled in the program would be paid back either by that person's heirs or through a tax lien on the property at an interest rate of no more than 3 percent.

HAGERSTOWN -- Some Hagerstown landlords could find themselves paying thousands of dollars if they're ordered to raise the ceiling height of their rental properties to satisfy a city code, the president of a local group representing landlords said Wednesday. Allan Johnson, president of the Landlords and Property Owners Association of Washington County Maryland Inc., said that the city's recent decision to enforce a code that requires ceilings to be at least 7 feet high would leave some landlords with a tough decision: Either pay thousands of dollars for renovations, or "not utilize" their buildings.

HAGERSTOWN -- In a continuing effort to cut down on fires in rental properties, the Hagerstown Fire Department is promoting a new program that attempts to reach tenants through a persuasive channel: their landlords. Since March, the department has offered free lithium-battery smoke alarms to Hagerstown property owners who agree to draft lease agreements requiring responsible behaviors from their tenants, Fire Prevention Coordinator Mike Weller said. Those agreements expose tenants to a $500 civil citation if they take down the smoke alarm or render it disabled, and prohibit risky behaviors such as leaving cooking food unattended, smoking inside and using portable heaters, Weller said.

WAYNESBORO, PA. -- Waynesboro Borough Council President Craig Newcomer wants volunteers - landlords, renters and other interested parties - to serve on a committee to study what should be included in a rental property inspection ordinance. The council heard Wednesday night from several landlords and rental property owners who expressed opposition to an inspection program. One former renter spoke in support of an inspection regimen. "I can't see it happening anytime soon," Newcomer said when asked how long it might take to have an inspection program.
