Short-Term Rental Permits
On December 15, 2020, Seabrook Island Town Council adopted Ordinance 2020-14, which established new permitting and operating requirements for the following types of businesses:
In addition to an annual business license, all rental units operating in the town must apply for and obtain an annual Short-Term Rental Permit beginning on January 1, 2021. Each unit shall be required to have a separate permit. Short-Term Rental Permit applications must be submitted with the annual business license application. Please include your payment (cash or check only) with your application forms.
Rental units with a valid business license as of December 31, 2020, will have until March 31st to apply for and obtain a permit for the 2021 calendar year. All other units must apply for and obtain a Short-Term Rental permit prior to advertising and/or renting the unit.
Individuals and businesses who are found guilty of failing to comply with the requirements of Ordinance 2020-14 shall be subject to fines of up to $500.00 (plus statutory assessments), imprisonment for not more than 30 days, or both, for each violation. Each day a violation continues to exist shall be considered a separate offense.
