Jupiter residents can lease to visitors

The Jupiter Inlet Colony’s residents cannot be prohibited from renting
out their homes for weekends or short periods, a Palm Beach County
Circuit Court judge ruled. The development’s five-member commission
passed a regulation in 2008 that all rentals must be for a minimum of 30
days, and a house could not be rented more than three times in one
year. “We do not want sororities or fraternities coming down here for
spring break,” said vice mayor Dan Comerford. The Bondars, who bought
their home in the community in 2006, began renting it out to couples
and golfers, with some staying just for the weekend. The ruling does not affect all homeowners, however, just those who had already rented their homes before 2008. Homes in the area start
at $1.25 million and go up to about $7 million.
