VacAtion Rentals

Updates


Registration:

All vacation rentals must be registered with the Town of Bar Harbor on an annual basis, prior to rental. Previously registered vacation rentals must re-register on or before May 31 annually. Registration is under the management of the Code Enforcement Officer.

 Inspection:

All vacation rental properties must pass an inspection prior to the issuance of the registration card.

General:

  • A inspection will be scheduled with the property owner upon submission of the completed form and payment of the registration fee.  

  • A registration card will be issued after completion of the inspection and when all requirements are met. 

  • The card will certify that the applicant has met all requirements and passed the required inspection.

  • The registration card must be posted on the premises of the vacation rental unit for convenient inspection by a vacation rental occupant.

  • Registration does not relieve the property owner from the obligation to obtain any additional permits necessary.

  • Failure to comply with the requirements above will constitute a violation under the Bar Harbor Land Use Ordinance, Chapter 125, Article X.

  • An appeal from the action of Code Enforcement or the Fire Department may be sought through the powers and responsibilities in the Land Use Ordinance, Chapter 125, § 125-103.
