If managed incorrectly, vacation rentals can often lead to violations which disturb the enjoyment of residing properties. The following are some requirements that vacation rentals need to abide by in order to minimize any negative impacts within our community:
They are required to obtain a Vacation Rental Certificate of Compliance from the City if the owner of the home does not live there.
A manager is required and must be able to respond to emergency situations within one (1) hour.
Vehicles cannot park on the grass, and no more than one (1) vehicle per bedroom is allowed.
Garbage receptacles must only be placed curbside during pick-up hours.
All vacation rentals are subject to all other City codes including our noise ordinance.
Complaints can be filed several different ways depending on the violation.
To file noise complaints during non-office hours (Monday through Saturday 7 p.m. to 8 a.m.) please call the police non-emergency number at 954-764-4357.
Please Contact Code Compliance at 954-390-2151 for all other violations.
It is always helpful to file neighborhood complaints to the rental agency such as Airbnb, HomeAway and VRBO. Filing complaints with the agency helps them regulate the rentals to make sure they are abiding by their rules as well as ours. It is encouraged that all affected neighbors submit concerns with them as well. Concerns may be filed by using the following contact information:
