Boston apartment registry doubles

More landlords complying

After a slow start marked by landlord opposition, Boston’s new registry of apartments has more than doubled its entries in the last three weeks, city inspectors said Monday.

The database, designed to make landlords accountable for tenant safety, now contains information on more than 80,000 rental units in a city with 140,000 apartments, said Bryan Glascock, commissioner of the Inspectional Services Department. A large backlog of paper registrations continues to be processed, he added.
