Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
The simplest thing to do would be to claim that you weren't renting the house, but instead, you are paying the owner to put on the party/party planning or some other creative arrangement to avoid stating that you were actually renting the house. That should be enough to get around any short-term lease prohibition.
But, if the owner doesn't want to try and modify the agreement into something that will work for the two of you, then the contract would be illegal, and therefore void, and you should be entitled to a refund. But, if the owner wants to let you finish this out, he/she should be able to help you come up with a way to get around the local ordinance.
But, if the landlord foregoes all of this, and demands that you vacate, you could possibly have to leave.....but you should have grounds to recover all or part of your money.
