Please complete this form only if you are the owner of a property in which a tenant has applied for a Homestay Permit.
Please note that homestay permits are limited to one per person, immediate household, LLC, corporation, trust, or other legal entity within the City of Asheville.
All other homestay permitting requests should proceed to the City's Development Portal.
On December 14, 2021, the Asheville City Council enacted changes to the City's homestay requirements found in Section 7-16-1 of the Unified Development Ordinance that require, among other things that:
"When the property owner does not reside on the property, an application for a homestay permit must be submitted by the full-time resident of the property and the property owner together as co-applicants. The homestay permit shall be issued to both parties with all rights and responsibilities afforded to the applicants equally."
This form has been created to streamline the process for property owners that are affected by this amendment.
