In the City of Gainesville if you plan to rent out rooms, you are required to have a Landlord License. The permit is $80 and there are forms that must be completed. Your name and contact number will be added to the Landlord Registry and by becoming a landlord, you and your tenants will be held responsible for upholding city codes. City codes and state statute violations will result in points on your license. If you accumulate six points on your license in one year, your license can be revoked, and you will not be allowed to rent rooms.
