All short-term rental (STR) property owners are encouraged to follow protocols within the Town’s short-term rental ordinance to prevent penalties. Click here to view the Town’s current short-term rental ordinance.

If you’re renting your property for less than 30 consecutive days, you need an annual rental business license for each property prior to advertising or renting and the property must pass inspection for conformance to building codes. A property that is rented for 14 days or less in total during a calendar year is not considered a short-term rental. Any property rented on a long-term lease basis (30 days or longer) must have a standard business license instead of an STR license. Please review the classification section below for specifics.

Licenses are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Licenses expire on April 30 annually and must be renewed no later than April 30 annually to avoid penalties. Existing STR license holders have the first preference to renew annually to maintain their license, as long as the license is in good standing with the Town. To apply for a license, visit our online services portal.
