In Burke County, there are two types of short-term rentals:
No. Houseboats and floating vessels of any type cannot be used as a short-term rental.
The overnight occupancy for a short-term rental is two (2) persons per (legal) bedroom.
A designated responsible party is a person or agency who is available to respond to complaints or other issues regarding the short-term rental.
“Dedicated” short-term rental owners are required to have a designated responsible party. “Owner Occupied” short-term rental owners are not required to have a designated responsible party because the owner is present during the rental period.
A verified complaint is a report of violation of one or more of the short-term rental regulations that has been validated by the Zoning Administrator.
If a property owner receives three (3) verified complaints within a twelve (12) month period, the short-term rental permit will be revoked.
The inspection is to ensure the safety of the renters.
There will be an initial inspection before the short-term rental permit is issued. A yearly inspection will be performed when the short-term rental permit is renewed.
