Things to know before renting your home for football season

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, Ala. -

Thinking of renting or leasing your home for Auburn football game weekends? The City of Auburn has released a list of things you should know:

• Renting or leasing your single family home for less than six continuous months may constitute a use violation or an unrelated occupancy violation in accordance with the City of Auburn's Zoning Ordinance. If you are considering renting or leasing your single-family residence, please contact the City's Planning Department to find out what is allowed based on how your property is zoned.

• Renting or leasing your home for less than six continuous months requires the collection and remittance of the State, County, and City lodging taxes, per section 40-26-1 of the Code of Alabama, 1976 and Section 12-176 of the City of Auburn Code of Ordinances.

• Renting or leasing your primary home could negatively affect your homestead exemption status with Lee County.

• Renting or leasing multifamily dwellings such as condos and apartment complexes for less than six continuous months will still depend on appropriate zoning and collection and remittance of State, County and City lodging taxes.

For more information on lodging taxes, please contact the City's Revenue Office at 334-501-7239.

For more information on zoning, please contact the City's Planning Department at 334-501-3040.
