Leasing of Condominium Units

The Jupiter Bay Condominium Association does not lease condo units.  However, many of our condominium owners work directly through various local real estate agents for rentals.  Services provided by these agents vary from tenant referrals to property management.  Following is a list of local agents that are used by our owners.  None of these are affiliated with or endorsed by the Association.

Jupiter Bay Rental Restrictions:

Please insure that your rental agencies, tenants, lessees and/or their guests are aware of the rules and regulations governing the rental of Jupiter Bay condominiums.

  • Renters may have pets in the units but must meet the weight restriction of 20 pounds or less .
  • Parking permits are required for all vehicles that park overnight on condominium property.
  • Vehicles cannot be trucks, boats, trailers, mobile homes, cargo vans, motorcycles, recreational vehicles or buses.
  • A one-bedroom unit is limited to occupancy by four persons, and a two-bedroom unit is limited to occupancy by six persons.

The Association can deny rentals for any unit whose owner is delinquent in paying assessments/fees.  Delinquency for rental purposes is defined as overdue payments for late fees, interest, attorney fees and/or assessments as of the rental application date.   The Association may also have the right to deny delinquent owners and their renters/guests use of common facilities and services including spa, swimming pools and cable TV.

A Guest/Lease Registration Form must be completed for each non-owner unit occupancy and submitted to the Association Office.

Guest / Lease Registration Form

Owners who wish to restrict smoking in their units should communicate this to their renters or rental agencies.  Although we do not restrict the number of days that a unit can be rented (except the C West building), most owners find that monthly rentals minimize wear-and-tear while still delivering needed rental income.  C West owners are restricted to monthly rentals only.

Rentals by Owner:

Some Jupiter Bay condominium owners who rent their units have elected to save the 15 to 20% rental agent commission and rent their units directly.  Although, this provides extra net income, it places additional responsibility and tasks on the condominium owner.  Tasks include advertising, tenant qualification, scheduling, lease execution, fee collection, tax payment, record keeping/retention and cleaning.  Fees include security deposit, rental and taxes.  Regardless of whether a unit is rented by an owner or agency, both county and state taxes must be collected on any rental of six months or less and forwarded, in a timely manner, to the respective government department.

Information for Palm Beach County

If you rent or lease accommodations for 6 months or less in Palm Beach County, you need to pay Tourist Development Tax (TDT). The Tax Collector collects these taxes on behalf of the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners.

  • The tax is 6% of the total taxable rental receipts.
  • It is an add-on tax and is collected from the tenant at the time rent or accommodation charges are collected.
  • The owner(s) of the rental facility is responsible to pay the tax to the Tax Collector.
  • The tax is due by the 20th of each month following the month the rent was paid.
  • Examples of accommodations include hotel, apartment-hotel, motel, resort motel, tourist or trailer camp, condominium, cooperatively-owned apartment, multiple-unit structure, single-family home, mobile home, garage apartment, beach house, cottage or room in a home used for living quarters.
  • In order to process the tax payment, you must file an application for a tourist tax number. The application is downloadable from www.pbctax.com.
  • Payment must be made in US funds.
  • Beginning in 2018 you can register, file returns, pay taxes and manage your account using a convenient, online payment center.
  • Failure to collect and remit Tourist Development Tax is a theft of state funds and carries felony charges.  A penalty will be charged if a TDT return is not filed by the due date, including those periods of no rental activity.

In addition to the Palm Beach County tourist development tax, the regular 6.0% state sales tax must be collected and sent (quarterly or semiannually based on annual amount collected) to the Florida Department of Revenue.

Remedies for failure to collect taxes include the issuance of a warrant, filed in Palm Beach County, which places a lien against the property.
