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.
