Chapter 15.2.4: Buildings and Construction

Posted on February 1, 2021 at 2:08 PM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Q.  In Chapter 15.2.4: Buildings and Construction, what is the definition used for "Homeowner" and "personal residence" in section 15.24.020.B 1.b(i)? Under the current definition, could claim this exception if I purchased a second home in Laramie for my personal use?

A.  No the exemption does not apply to a second home.

Chapter 15.2.4:  “homeowner”,  “personal residence”, is better clarified as “primary residence” (owner of the residence and occupies (lives in) residence). The individual or the entity is the owner of the property and it is their primary (personal) residence that they occupy (does not include second homes, rentals, mother-in-law houses or other similar accessory residential units). If the person living there is not the owner of the property (homeowner) and it is not their primary, personal residence they do not meet the exclusion.
