Is my business in a commercial or residential area?
RESIDENTIAL if the business is operated out of your home; or you have a mobile business with your home address as your business address.
A home occupation affidavit must be completed, notarized, and approved by the Zoning Administrator. This form is available at both the Business License Office and the Planning & Zoning Department. Notaries are available on staff.
If you are a renter you will also need:
(1) Privately owned home: a notarized letter from the homeowner, and a copy of your lease agreement.
(2) Apartment complex: a letter from the property manager, on letterhead, along with the lease agreement, will be sufficient.
(3) The letter must state that the homeowner/ property owner is allowing the home based business.
COMMERCIAL locations must contact Building Services at (770) 429-4554 or email to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy.
