Short Term Rentals

With the advent of VRBO and AirBNB and considering the love of inland lake properties in MI, short term rental disputes are more common. We can help associations address the issue in a proactive manner or remedial way. We often address issues of restrictive covenants that’s on the title of properties. We can advise property owners and associations to their rights, opportunities, and remedies. This is a constantly changing landscape legally. Issues often come up because some properties have a tax burden significant enough that people look to rent and create investment properties. Some owners have lived at their property for multiple decades and want to preserve a neighborhood culture that gets shifted when there are short term rentals. We acknowledge that there are a host of different factors and challenges that cause this clash between homeowners.
