My properties are Guaranteed to be 100% Legally Operated Vacation Rentals - No worries of your vacation being cancelled due to City of Fort Lauderdale Code Enforcement shutting down the house you have rented. As of November 1, 2015, all vacation rentals located in the City of Fort Lauderdale must be licensed by the City of Fort Lauderdale as a vacation rental. All of my properties have every license required to legally operate as a vacation rental including the new City of Fort Lauderdale Licenses. My Certificate of Occupancy Number is 1500531 and all licensed vacation rental are required to post this license number in their advertisement. Unlicensed vacation rental properties are subject to closure, fines, penalties and cancellation of reservations. I am licensed by the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulations, The Broward County Tourist Development Department and the Florida Department of Revenue, The City of Fort Lauderdale Business License, Broward County Business License and City of Fort Lauderdale Vacation Rental License . I am happy to provide copies of my license as they are required to be posted in the properties. These are the six licenses required by every vacation rental. Part of the new City Ordinance limits occupancy to a maximum of two people per bedroom excluding children under the age of 13. Therefore, a three bedroom property has a maximum occupancy of six guests excluding children under the age of 13. If the home you are considering, is advertising anything more than two people per bedroom, then they are clearly violating the law. So if in doubt when looking for vacation rentals, ask the property manager or owner.
