On Dec 28 2018, Governor Baker signed the new short term vacation rental law effective Jan 1, 2019 (yes, 1 business day to implement). Since then Tea Lane Associates, like many real estate companies, insurance companies, home owners and brokers have been scrambling to understand and comply with, the new laws for the busy 2019 summer Martha's Vineyard rental season. At Tea Lane we have revised our lease, our software, and rental system. Our policies and procedures have been updated as an ongoing project, and our accounting is now set to accommodate the changes and make the transition as smooth as possible for you. In addition our brokers and agents are fully up to speed on the requirements and we are happy to answer any questions you have.
