Building a Bed and Breakfast
Here's To Your Profitable
Bed And Breakfast
Building a Bed and Breakfast
Many people entering the bed and breakfast industry will buy one that is currently operating. These locations tend to be readily available. Sales listings are rarely lacking in choices. However, some people are much bigger dreamers. Building a bed and breakfast is not unheard of but it isnít easy either. If you want to build your business from the ground up there will be an array of legal requirements. Your local town or city hall should be able to give you the necessary information.
Before any ground work or construction can begin you need permission. Every jurisdiction has zoning laws for businesses. You have to obtain legal permission for building a bed and breakfast on the selected property. Depending on your chosen location you may have to apply for specific permits. Many areas will not allow construction because of residences or schools. Be clear on all aspects before going ahead with building.
Instead of building a bed and breakfast, some people use their own home. This is often the situation but it also must meet zoning requirements. Private property is subject to local laws. If you find yourself turned down in all aspects, get some legal advice. In some cases you may be able to have someone work on your behalf. There are lawyers who specialize in zoning regulation issues. Proving that your bed and breakfast would be a valuable asset to your community can often sway the decision of local law makers. Educate yourself so you know your options and rights. Everything worth having is worth fighting for.
It is sad that many unsuspecting new B&B operators don't know a few little things that could mean the difference between a "No Vacancy" sign or a "For Sale" sign on their front lawn!

Thanks Patricia and Rob
We were writing an offer for an existing bed and breakfast when we came upon your website. After reading your information we made a complete turn in our business plan. We were able to ask many questions of the seller we wouldn't have asked before. Our agent was unaware of many of the points you mention. As a result, we greatly reduced the price of our offer. If the vendor refuses (which I don't think he will), we'll be fully prepared to find a better deal. Your ebook has already saved us money!
You have our thanks
