In addition to satisfying the requirements of § 305, a certificate of zoning compliance for an accessory family dwelling unit shall not be issued until the following requirements are satisfied.
(A) The owner-occupant shall sign an affidavit stating that the accessory unit will be occupied only by one or both parent(s), grandparent(s), children or grandchildren of an occupant of the principal dwelling unit. The affidavit shall also identify such parent(s), grandparent(s), children or grandchildren by name and identify the principal occupant whose parent(s), grandparent(s), children or grandchildren will occupy the accessory unit. Such affidavits shall be filed in the Town Clerk's records and shall be available for public inspection; and
(B) The foregoing affidavit shall be accompanied by a surety deposit of $100 which shall be refunded if and when the owner-occupant gives proper notice to the town pursuant to § 1603 that the use of part of the principal dwelling for an accessory family dwelling unit has been abandoned. Such security deposit shall be forfeited if the owner-occupant fails to give proper notice to the town pursuant to § 1603 that no parent(s), grandparent(s), children or grandchildren identified in the affidavit continues to occupy the accessory unit. If such notice is not given and the accessory family dwelling unit is occupied by one or more persons who are not parent(s), grandparent(s), children or grandchildren, the owner-occupant, in addition to forfeiting the surety deposit, shall be subject to the enforcement provisions of § 316.
