Rental Permit Instructions and Information
OBTAINING A RENTAL PERMIT
The Town of Huntington requires a rental permit for all one and two-family homes, condos, townhouses, apartment complexes, multiple residencies and mixed use occupancy buildings which are rented out. Rental permits are not required when:
- The owner lives on the premises
- The owner's immediate family lives on the premises
- There is a homeowner's association on site
- There is a property management office on site
Both the initial rental application as well as the renewal application may be found on this page. If you are an owner who wishes to rent and your circumstances require a rental permit, please follow the instructions below for an initial application. Download a Renewal application.
The rental permit application above must be completed and notarized. The application packet includes the application itself as well as instructions on what needs to be submitted, the fees required, and how to schedule an inspection. If you are renting out a dwelling with more than one unit, such as a two-family house or an apartment building with multiple apartments, you will need to print additional unit description sheets. The application includes one copy of the sheet, and one sheet is required per unit.
