Residential Rental Registration
The Residential Rental Registration Ordinance requires registration of all residential rental properties located within the City of Palm Coast. There are several exemptions to this Ordinance such as properties that have on-site property management and maintenance, hotels, motels, rooming houses, resort dwellings, bed & breakfast inns, manufactured housing developments, apartment units and condominium units. Duplex units in which the owner resides on-site are also exempt. The term “absentee landlord” means an owner of residential rental property who does not live within the jurisdictional limits of Flagler County and Counties abutting Flagler County (Volusia, Putnam & St. Johns.) In the event that an owner of residential rental property is an absentee landlord, upon registration of his/her/its residential property or properties, the said absentee landlord shall include the name, address and telephone number(s) and other contact information pertaining to an authorized local designated representative.
One form must be completed for each rental property. The “additional” registration form is provided for use by owners of multiple residential rental properties within Palm Coast. The cost of registering residential properties is $5.00 per unit. A single family dwelling is one unit and a duplex dwelling is two units.
