Reminder: Mercantile License Now Required for Rental Properties

All property owners that offer short-term rentals (30 days or less) in Ventnor must obtain a mercantile license prior to rental (per ordinance 2018-044).
 
The rise in online, short-term rentals has prompted the City to require a license in order to ensure code enforcement and public safety oversight can be taken if necessary.
 
The license covers a property from January 1 to December 31 and will need to be renewed annually. It costs $100.
