Rental Registration Update
As of August 21st, 2018, Dorchester County no longer requires the owners of rental units to register them with the Department of Planning and Zoning, and there no longer is an annual registration fee to pay. This only applies in the unincorporated areas of the County, outside of municipalities. If you own rental units in a town, please check with the town government about their rental registration requirements. Also, this change also does not affect your requirement to register you rental units with the Maryland Department of Environment.
