King George County recently proposed a short-term rental ordinance that would require any short-term rental to be in a property owners’ principal residence, so a second home in the County could not be rented out as a short-term rental. King George County Realtors® expressed serious concerns about this impacting the Fairview Beach area and also reducing available short-term rental housing that is sorely needed for individuals coming to train at Dahlgren for short stints.
FAAR plans to send a letter of concern to the County expressing the burden this rule will put on property owners in the County. FAAR will also post to this blog entry draft letters of concern for agents to use when communicating with their elected officials. This is not law yet and we have a chance to influence this process before the final decisions are made.
