We have a great vacation rental property but have found out that there is a deed restriction that states that the property (which we own) may not be rented out on a day to day or even weekly basis. If we wish to rent it out it must be at least a 30 day rental contract. I am aware this happens frequently and am just curious how anyone deals with this sticky issue.
I have not personally faced this issue, but I have seen others rent their home on a "monthly" basis due to a lack of a rental permit that allows for shorter-term rentals. It appears that they do enter into a 30 day contract with the primary "renter", but the contracted renter may or may not stay the entire 30 days. Some of "monthly" renters in turn work it out with their friends or other family to use the other weeks, etc. Not entirely legal, but I know that it is done. Or, you could just play dumb until someone complains, if there are no penalties.
Why is a 30 day rental, used by different members of a family not legal. If you rent to Joe who only stays one week, then his sister Agnes comes and stays two weeks and then her sister-in-law Millie stays one week. Why would this not be considered legal???????
