Hotel Motel and Vacation Guest House Pay

Transient Occupancy Tax Not Tenants Under Landlord/Tenant Law!



Are You A Hotel Guest, Tenant or Transient Occupant?: Hotels, which are formally known as public lodging establishments, according to F.S. §509.013(4)(a), cannot immediately remove a guest from its premises for reasons such as nonpayment or being a nuisance, as would be the case with a restaurant that wants to remove a patron. The law protects individuals who intend to make of their hotel room a home, even in the absence of a written lease.


A hotel may call the police for help, but the police may refuse to get involved in a civil dispute. The hotel may also lock out such guests to motivate them to leave, but, in doing so, it risks being sued for an unlawful eviction.



Taxes are paid on temporary lodging are called Transient Occupancy Taxes (TOT).  “Transient” in this context means short-term. The tax is collected from lodgers who rent a room or space for 30 days or less.

 

Transient occupancy is the occupancy of a vacation property, hotel, motel, inn, boarding house, lodging house, tourist home or similar sleeping accommodation for a period of 30 days or less.  This type of occupant is classified as a guest or a transient occupant. A guest occupies property known as lodging, an accommodation or a unit. Further, the property is not called a rental property. The termrentalimplies a landlord/tenant relationship exists.  “Transient” in this context means short-term.

Landlord-Tenant Law

Primary tabs

Overview

Landlord-tenant law governs the rental of commercial and residential property. It is composed primarily of state statutes and common law. A number of states have based their statutory law on either the Uniform Residential Landlord And Tenant Act (URLTA) or the Model Residential Landlord-Tenant Code. Further, federal statutory law may be relevant during times of national/regional emergencies and in preventing forms of discrimination.

 

The Four Basic Types of Landlord-Tenant Relationships

The basis of the legal relationship between a landlord and tenant is grounded in both contract and property law. The tenant has a property interest in the land (historically, a non-freehold estate) for a given period of time before the property interest transfers back to the landlord. See State Property Statues. While these four relationship types are generally true, they are subject to state statutes, as well as the actual lease agreed upon by the landlord and the tenant. 

The length of the tenancy is typically classified in 1 of 4 categories:

1.   Term of Years Tenancy

1.   The relationship lasts for a fixed period which is agreed upon in advance by both the landlord and tenant. When the period ends, so do the tenant's possessory rights/

2.   In this relationship, the tenant has the right to possess the land, to restrict others (including the landlord from entering the land, and to sublease or assign the property). 

2.   Periodic Tenancy

1.   The relationship is automatically renewed unless the landlord gives advance notice of termination

2.   In this relationship, the tenant has the right to possess the land, to restrict others (including the landlord from entering the land, and to sublease or assign the property). 

3.   Tenancy at Will

1.   There is no fixed ending period. The relationship continues for as long as the tenant and landlord desire.

4.   Tenancy at Sufferance

1.   The tenant continues to inhabit the property after the lease expires.

Michael Crandall, the senior vice president for the Siegel Group Nevada, said he couldn’t speak on specific properties (he noted Siegel Group has 12,000 apartments in 12 states) he said that properties aren’t evicting people for nonpayment of rent.

 

The evictions were supposed to be lifted Sept. 1 and prior to that we had filed evictions on tenants that had entered payment plans with us and then broke their payment plan, which was allowed per the governor’s order,” Crandall said. “Then, the governor extended the moratorium. That’s why we aren’t able to evict and that’s fine. We aren’t evicting anyone for any nonpayment of rent.

Centers for Disease Control Order Banning Evictions

On September 4, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued an order banning evictions for certain renters through December 31, 2020. The CDC is issuing the eviction moratorium to protect public health and prevent further spread of COVID-19. The order is separate and independent from the expired CARES Act eviction moratorium. To be eligible for eviction protections under the order, residents must sign a declaration form (see link below) and meet the requirements outlined in the order, which are also described in the declaration form.


The order is available at: https://www.federalregister.gov/d/2020-19654

COVID-19 Help - CARES Act Eviction Protection

The CARES Act, signed into federal law on March 27, 2020, provided 120 days of eviction relief for tenants in multifamily rental housing that is federally insured or backed. You should not have been served with an eviction notice solely for nonpayment of rent before July 25, 2020, and any notice must have provided you with at least 30 days to leave the property (August 24, 2020). During the 120-day eviction moratorium, your landlord was prohibited from charging you late fees, penalties, or other charges for paying your rent late. It’s important to note that the eviction moratorium did not relieve you of your obligation to pay your rent. It merely forbid your landlord from evicting you during that period for late payment.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), located within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announces the issuance of an Order under Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act to temporarily halt residential evictions to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

This Order is effective September 4, 2020 through December 31, 2020.
