Fines loom for rental owner

Palm Beach County rental property owner George Kurtz faces fines from the village of Wellington for refusing to register through the town’s rental licensing program, even though a special magistrate on Wednesday ordered him to register by May 12. After that date, he faces fines of $25 a day for each of his units. Kurtz owns 18 rental houses in the village of about 55,000 residents, and claims the registration fee is a form of harassment. If Kurtz refuses to pay, the special magistrate may place a lien on Kurtz’s properties and later may request foreclosure.
