ORDINANCE #9-2020        

AN ORDINANCE AMENDING THE CODE OF THE CITY OF EGG HARBOR  TO PROHIBIT SHORT TERM RENTALS OF RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES 


WHEREAS, the purpose of this Ordinance is to establish a procedure and authorize rules and regulations thereunder for Short Term Rental Property Prohibition in the City of Egg Harbor; and

WHEREAS, the New Jersey Legislature has, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40:52-1(d) and (n), specifically authorized municipal corporations to regulate “furnished and unfurnished rented housing or living units and all other places and buildings used for sleeping and lodging purposes, and the occupancy thereof” and the “rental of real property for a term of less than one hundred seventy-five (175) consecutive days for residential purposes by a person having a permanent place of residence elsewhere”; and

WHEREAS, the City of Egg Harbor wishes to impose penalties as permitted pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40:49-5 and N.J.S.A. 40:69A-29 for violations of the provisions established herein for short term rental prohibitions; and

WHEREAS, in recent years, there has risen a proliferation of internet and other media advertising often on websites dedicated to the rental of dwelling units for short terms
and for a period of 30 days or less; and 

WHEREAS, the City’s experience, as well as common experiences, dictates the conclusion that Short Term Rentals frequently result in public nuisance, noise complaints, sanitation issues, overcrowding and illegal parking within the residential neighborhoods of the city, and essentially converted residential dwelling units into illegal de-facto hotels, motels, boarding houses and other commercial enterprises in violation of the City’s zoning and other codes as well as other state statutes; and

WHEREAS, the City wishes to deter the cyber-social phenomenon of any person renting his/her residential dwelling unit on various websites as well as listing of short term rentals by website businesses of any dwelling unit that constitutes an illegal business operating in violation of the city’s zoning code and other public nuisance ordinances; and

WHEREAS, common problems also frequently associated with such short term rentals include overcrowding, excessive noise, unruly behavior, obscene language, fighting littering, parking of vehicles on lawns, public urination, sanitation issues, poor maintenance of the property and grounds and violation of trash collection ordinances.

NOW THERFORE BE IT ORDAINED by the Mayor and Council of the City of Egg Harbor , County of Atlantic and State of New Jersey that the Code of the City of Egg Harbor is hereby amended to include Ordinance #2020________entitled “Short Term Rental Property Prohibition” in the Code of the City of Egg Harbor, to state the following:   
 
SHORT TERM RENTAL PROPERTY PROHIBITION

Section 1. Background and Findings:

A. The City of Egg Harbor finds that the rental of residential dwellings for short-term occupancy has been identified as a community concern due to the potential for increased traffic, noise, high occupant turnover, and increased density in residential neighborhoods.

B. The number of individuals occupying such short-term rentals has the potential to exceed standards for the design capacity of such structures and to cause health and safety risks for the occupants, neighbors and nearby properties.

C. The purpose of this Ordinance is to safeguard the peace, safety and general welfare of the residents of the City and their visitors and guests by eliminating noise, traffic and parking congestion, vandalism, overcrowding, neighborhood uncertainty, high occupant turnover, diminution of neighborhood character, and other secondary effects that have been associated with the short-term rental of residential properties.

D.    The short-term market nationwide has expanded with the use of professional brokers and internet listing services.  This increase requires an expansion of enforcement mechanisms to deter parties who facilitate and solicit short term rentals.  Because there are numerous homeowners, real estate offices, brokers, and other agencies that actively promote short-term rentals to potential City visitors through the internet and other forms of advertisement, it is necessary to prohibit the promotion and advertisement of short-term rentals.

E. Therefore, the City adopts the following provisions in order to prohibit short-term residential rentals and enforce said prohibitions.

Section 2. Definitions

For the purpose of this Ordinance, the following definitions shall apply unless the context clearly indicates or requires a different meaning.

 A. Advertise or Advertisement.  Any written, electronic or oral publication, dissemination, solicitation or circulation which is intended to directly or indirectly induce any person to enter into an agreement for the short-term rental of a dwelling.  This definition includes but is not limited to mailings, print advertisements, internet listings, e-mail publications or other oral, printed or electronic media.

 B. Dwelling.  Any single or multi-family residential building or structure in the City, or any part thereof, which is occupied in whole or in part, or intended to be occupied in whole or in part, as a home, residence for sleeping ,cooking, gathering and or entertaining of occupants or guests by one or more individuals. This includes an apartment, house, condominium,  building ,co-operative,  converted space, or portions thereof, that is offered to use, made available for use, or is used for accommodations,  lodging, cooking, sleeping, gathering, and/or entertaining of occupants and/or guests, for consideration, for a period of 30 days or less.

C. Facilitate.  A person “facilitates”, if, acting with knowledge that an operator, managing agency or rental agent is renting a dwelling on a short-term basis, the person knowingly provides the operator, managing agency or rental agent with means or opportunity for the commission of said offense.

D. Housekeeping Unit. Constitutes a family-type situation, involving one or more persons, living together that exhibit the kind of stability, permanency and functional lifestyle equivalent to that of a traditional family unit, as further described in the applicable reported and unreported decisions of the New Jersey Courts.
  
E.  Person.  Any entity, individual, corporation, association, firm, partnership, limited liability company, or any combination, who legally uses, possesses, owns, leases, sub-leases or licenses (including an operator, principal, shareholder, director, agent, or employee, individually or collectively)  and that has charge, care control or participates in the expenses and/or profit of a dwelling pursuant to a written or unwritten agreement, rental, lease, license ,use, occupancy agreement, or any other agreement.

 H.  Short-term rental. Any rental of a dwelling for a period of 30 days or less.

I.   Solicit. A person “solicits”, if, with the intent to promote or facilitate the short-term rental of a dwelling, such person commands, encourages, requests or solicits another person to engage in a short term rental agreement.

C. No person owning, leasing, or having control of a dwelling shall allow it to be used, occupied or possessed as a short term rental.

F. Nothing in this chapter shall prevent the lawful occupancy of a dwelling by a persons who are members of the housekeeping unit of the owner, without consideration, such as houseguests, for a period of 30 days or less.
