Brookhaven officials recently overturned a short term rental ban placed last fall, citing they were not able to regulate short term rentals at the time. Homeowners can now apply for a permit to engage in STVR, there are special land use requirements, zoning requirements and a 180-day cap annually. Owners and hosts entering this market should pay close attention to compliance and work directly with their Community Development Department as permits will not be reissued annually if you are in violation twice in a single year.
