Short Term Rental Registration Deadline 4/6/18

Short Term Rental Registration must be completed by Friday, 4/6/18. Enforcement of the Short Term Rental Ordinance will begin Monday 4/9/18, with the City’s Department of Property Improvement and Neighborhood Preservation issuing Summonses to any property owners and owner’s agents who are found to be in violation of the Short Term Rental Ordinance at that time. 

Property owners can comply either by removing their ad and ceasing short term rental of their property (if the property is not eligible), or registering their property and obtaining the necessary Short Term Rental Permit and Certificate of Inspection. Fines will accrue for each day that the property is not in compliance.

The City’s Short Term Rental Ordinance, adopted by the City Council, became effective on 11/28/17. Short Term Rental Ordinance 2017-40 repealed the former Summer Rental Ordinance, and now provides eligible residents with the opportunity to rent their property on a short-term basis, year round.

A short term rental is defined as renting a property for 30 days or less. In order to 1) advertise a short term rental, such as listing it with a realtor or posting it online, 2) enter into a short term rental agreement, or 3) rent property as a short term rental, the property must be registered and receive a valid Short Term Rental Permit and Certificate of Inspection from the City.

To allow residents ample time to comply with the new requirements, the City has allowed a grace period of several months before starting enforcement of the Short Term Rental Ordinance.

For questions, please contact the Director of the Department of Property Improvement and Neighborhood Preservation, Rob Mc Keon at 732-502-5741 or rob.mckeon@cityofasburypark.com.
