So I was recently notified that I need to get a license form the county in order to do short term rental on my lake cabin. As such, I started going through the process, but a couple of things came up that bother me.
They want to require that I put a water meter on my septic system to make sure the use is within the allowed limit. On one hand I’m ok with it as long as I don’t need to pay to install it-- but I don’t think they will pay for it. Is this allowed? Why are the private owners not required to have that installed? I’m not a full time rental.
The regulations allow only 2 people per bedroom plus 1 person per house. With a 3 bedroom cabin, I will only be allowed to rent to 7 people. For personal use, we come up with friends and each family generally has 2 kids. 3 families is 12 people. 7 people for 3 bedrooms seems very limited. Any way around it?
Thanks for any ideas in advance!
