Frequently Asked Questions
Is the tenant mail-in system mandatory for home rental tenants?
No. It is not mandatory. It reduces the number of people standing in line at Town Hall, waiting to purchase their Beach stickers.  You can, if you choose, come to Town Hall and purchase your sticker in person. Office hours are 9 A.M. to 12 Noon, seven days a week during the season.

Why must Start and End dates not overlap from one tenant to another?
Only one sticker is issued per house per day. If a customer arrives Saturday morning, for example, and goes directly to the sticker office he or she most likely will find out that the previous tenant has a sticker for that day, which means that the new tenant will not be able to get a sticker until Sunday morning.  

The Lucy Vincent parking lot holds 220 cars and, during July and August, the parking lot is often full to capacity. Therefore, only one car per house is eligible, allowing all tenants to have equal parking days.  However, overlap does not occur if the rental home is unoccupied at the time of rental.

Why is the first day of the lease not a beach parking day?
If the tenant arrives after 12 o’clock noon on the first day of his or her lease, the sticker office is closed. The tenant loses the first day for parking at the beach.

Must rental weeks be from Saturday to Saturday or Sunday to Sunday?
A rental period can be from any day to any other day so long as there are no overlapping dates.

Must leases be included with tenant mail-In applications?
No, only the rental agent’s signature is required.

What is a Transfer Sticker?
Transfer Stickers are issued so that people will not have to pay $75 for a season pass more than once a season. Season passes may be transferred from one car to another if:
1.      A car is disabled.
2.      A car is traded for another car.
3.      There is more than one owner of a house i.e. one leaves the other comes.
4.      More than one family shares a lease, i.e. one family leaves, the other comes.
Owner purchases sticker at start of season, leaves for a time, and returns this can be done repeatedly owner must wait in line and pay $20 each time. Those who plan to transfer stickers must either date the season pass
