Register a Short-Term Rental

If you plan to rent a property in Casco Township for less than 30 days, you must register that Short-Term Rental with the township.


2020 Short Term Rentals need to be registered before you start accepting reservations or within two weeks after Michigan's Stay-at-Home order ends.


Some of the highlights of the Short-Term Rental Regulatory Ordinance are listed below, however if you are planning to rent, we recommend that you read the complete ordinance (see link to the right or below).

Any owner who cannot be on site within an hour of being contacted about a rental issue, must arrange for a local agent who can respond on site in that time frame.


Maximum occupancy for any short-term rental shall not exceed the lesser of 12 total occupants or two occupants per bedroom plus two per finished floor.


A registered short-term rental can be rented for a minimum of 3 nights with only one rental turnover per week.


Any property without public water and public sanitary sewer you must agree to and pay for a septic inspection by the Allegan County Health Department before a rental permit will be granted. 


A rental registration can be revoked by the township when multiple violations of the rental ordinance occur.
