An inspection of the dwelling unit for compliance with the Coral Springs Land Development Code, Section 250160 – Vacation Rentals, is required prior to issuance of an initial vacation rental certificate of compliance. If violations are found, all violations must be corrected and re-inspected prior to issuance of the initial vacation rental certificate of compliance as provided herein.
No Advertisement/Rental is permitted prior to the issuance of the Certificate of Compliance.
A vacation rental unit must be properly maintained in accordance with the vacation rental standards herein and will be re-inspected annually. The applicant may submit an affidavit, in the form approved by the City, affirming the dwelling unit's continued compliance with this Section in lieu of a renewal re-inspection. For an inspection, all violations must be corrected and re-inspected within thirty (30) calendar days. Failure to correct such inspection deficiencies in the time-frames provided shall result in the suspension of the vacation rental certificate of compliance until such time as the violations are corrected and re-inspected.
The inspections shall be made by appointment with the vacation rental responsible party. If the inspector has made an appointment with the responsible party to complete an inspection, and the responsible party fails to admit the officer at the scheduled time, the owner shall be charged a "no show" fee in an amount to be determined by resolution of the City Commission to cover the inspection expense incurred by the city.
If the inspector(s) is denied admittance by the vacation rental responsible party or if the inspector fails in at least three (3) attempts to complete an initial or subsequent inspection of the rental unit, the inspector(s) shall provide notice of failure of inspection to the owner at the address shown on the existing vacation rental certificate of compliance or the application for vacation rental.
- For an initial inspection, the notice of failure of inspection results in the certificate of compliance not being issued; the vacation rental is not permitted to operate without a valid certificate of compliance.
- For a subsequent inspection, the notice of failure of inspection is considered a violation and is subject to enforcement remedies as provided herein.
