I have no idea why they would not register the building. But I do know that it is owned by 1 person. Not the City or State. So it sounds as if the MDR 325 defense will work for me.
Thanks for all of your help !
: : Thanks for all of your answers, I guess that I left one thing out that would have helped Anna answer my question. The building is new construction and only 1 1/2 years old and has never had a MDR.

: Only this: why on earth would they NOT register?
: The form only asks for owner/manager info; does not require a sworn statement that they have a Certificate of Occupancy; it is ridiculously nothing, compared to the penalty for not filing: no rent.
: One thought: city/state owned buildings may be exempt from MDL 325.
: Suggestion: don't spend the rent money, use MDL 325 as a defense, be prepared by doing the research & bringing it to court with you.
