Brigantine Clamps Down On Short Term Rentals and Party Houses

New rules for short term, Brigantine rental properties. Crack down on nuisance properties.

Most homeowners were not aware of this major decision. Too bad these types of decisions are being made when most homeowners are away.

Brigantine voted YES to a new, updated ordinance targeting short-term rental houses.

Are these new Brigantine rental rules too onerous? Too many penalties and expenses?

New Brigantine Rental Rules Kick In Within 30 Days.

During public comment, many asked to delay decision for a month. Fine-tune these rule changes. Conduct town hall to determine best practices.

Inspection ‘may’ be mandatory for each new tenant. All depending on track record. This could provide for selective enforcement.

  • Register property.
  • Get inspection.
  • Same fee for all sizes.
  • Sticker for front door
  • Register tenant information.
  • 12 or greater. Multiple tenancy. More inspections.

How will 2nd homeowners find out about new rules, risks, penalties? Mayor Simpson and Brigantine City Council did not offer a plan.

Those who rent their Brigantine home could be in for quite a surprise.

Bigger fines and penalties. $250 was not enough as a penalty. Updated rules gives Brigantine the TEETH needed to enforce city ordinance.

26 people in a house. They’re running hotels.

Mayor Simpson

Big giant homes (party houses) are the target, suggests Mayor Andy Simpson. Don’t have the bachelor parties. Yelling and screaming

Team looking out for non-registered landlords.

We just found out about this. Not aware of ordinance. Don’t people have right to participate in government decisions?

Mark, Brigantine homeowner.

  1. Most of these are good ideas that you can’t really argue with. Registration and inspection have been around for years. However, if the tenant register is intended to document every individual person who might be in a house, that is a bit absurd.

  2. Make it difficult on out of town owners, they get fed up and sell. Property values go down. Tax revenues follow. Then those precious, ridiculous pensions disappear as well. Careful what you wish for Brigantine residents.
