So, you have decided to rent your Cabin on Airbnb! Great! It’s time to start earning some money… oh wait… ignorance isn’t bliss! It could cost you a lot of money in fines if you don’t check with your governing authority.
The state of Wisconsin requires all short term rental properties to acquire a Tourist Roaming House License in order to short-term rent your property, room or even your sofa. In order to obtain this license you must meet all the requirements, check every box for an inspection, pay fees and renew annually.
Here is some of what you can expect from the application process from Polk County, WI:
- Pay a license fee and inspection fees
- Obtain a land survey
- Confirm septic system compliance
- Confirm water quality
- Home inspection
- and more….
