Looking to turn your house into a Vacation Rental?
Vacation Rental Process
It is recommended to have the Health Department review your request form to verify your septic system meets current standards and is sized to accommodate the number of guests requested. Once this determination is made the following will be required.
The septic tank must have been inspected and pumped (if necessary) within the last three years. An inspection or “Pumper’s Report” certifying the tank and results of the flow test on the leachfield are required by a Certified Septic Pumper (PDF). Please note the approved occupancy number will be based on the design capacity of your septic system. New septic systems installed within the last three years "that are in working order" are exempt from testing requirements, as are Homes that are on Public Sewer Systems.
Drinking water analysis as listed on the Water Quality Monitoring Schedule (PDF) is required. Please note the required frequencies for testing before submitting results to ensure the tests have not expired. Here is a partial list of Certified Water Testing Laboratories (PDF). Homes that are on Public Water systems are exempt.
