With new businesses like Airbnb and Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO) which help to simplify the process of renting private residences to short-term guests, it is causing challenges in many communities around the country.  Brentwood is no different.  

Our municipal code protects homeowners by prohibiting rentals in single-family residential districts for periods of less than three (3) months.  The City of Brentwood vigorously enforces this code. We have previously issued citations to homeowners who continued to rent their home or a portion of it on a short-term basis after being notified by the City. 

To learn more about the Brentwood ordinance that addresses occupancy in single family zoning districts, please see the Municipal Code, Section 78-19(e).

If you have additional questions, feel free to contact Jeff Dobson, Director of Planning and Codes, at 615-371-2204.
