Lease to Locals — For Renters

Unlocking new rentals for our local workforce

Introducing the Lease to Locals Program

By 2023, the county is projected to be nearly 2,600 rental units short of what is needed to house local workers. The program provides property managers and property owners generous cash incentives to convert their short-term rentals into seasonal and long-term rentals for our local workforce.

How the Program Works

1

Find a qualifying property

Working with a local property manager or property owner, find a Lease to Locals property and apply. 

2

Complete application

All tenants must complete an Employment Verification form and work at least 30 hours per week for an employer based in and serving Summit County.

3

Sign a Lease

Tenants must sign a minimum of a five month lease (seasonal) up to a twelve month lease (long term) with a qualifying tenant. 

4

Compliance

Landing Locals will conduct midway and final lease checks to ensure leases are in compliance. If they are found out of compliance, owners may be disqualified from receiving additional incentive payments.
