The following link is from the Town of Southold and is the Rental Permit Form that needs to be filled out. Click Here to view the actual Town Code 207
- The house needs to have a current Certificate of Occupancy or Pre- C of O. The Building Department number is 631.765.1802 and they will need your property Tax ID number (located on your tax bill) or email me Jim Reid and I can send you the information very easily.
- The Town Building Dept. will require a sketch or layout of the property (doesn’t have to be done by a professional) showing the interior layout and locations of the bedrooms. When doing this they want the bedroom dimensions and location of the smoke / CO detectors which need to be installed in each bedroom and other possible locations throughout the house.
- A licensed architect, a licensed professional engineer, or a licensed home inspector who has a valid NYS Uniform Fire Prevention Building code Certification or the Town Building inspector (Mike Varity) will need to visit the property and then sign off and notarize a form to be submitted with the permit.
- There will be a $200 permit fee which covers two years.
This will be a process, but in the long run will be positive for each property.
We, at Mystic Isle Realty, can gladly assist with this process so please call or email to discuss.
