2021 ordinance updates
As of May 1, 2021, all hosts were required to list their current registration ID numbers on platforms or risk being removed. We are currently accepting rental license numbers as registration ID numbers. In January of 2022, all hosts must apply for a short-term rental license and list the permanent registration ID number on their profiles across all platforms by March 1, 2022. Further conditions may apply depending upon the short-term rental platform.
Exempt Properties: Certain properties (only renting a bedroom, 30+ day rentals, etc) are exempt from needing to list a registration ID. However, depending on your short-term rental platform, you may still be required to indicate this exemption in your account.
By March 1, 2022, all property owners will need to transition to a short-term rental license, which includes:
- A management plan
- Liability insurance
- Neighbor notification
- Posting a floor plan in the unit
- Including the property's rental license registration number in the online listing
A neighbor notification letter template is included in the application packet. For help finding contact information for neighbor notification, see the City's PropertyInfo resource. If you live next to a condominium building, you only need to send one letter to the management company, not each individual unit.
Beginning March 1, 2022, owners will be limited to one short-term rental property in addition to their homesteaded property. This includes limited liability companies (LLCs) and the limit will be enforced for individuals with multiple LLCs.
Existing owners with multiple short-term rentals will not be grandfathered in. You do have the option to get a regular rental license.
Also beginning March 1, 2022, in buildings with 20 or more units, no more than 10% of the units can be short-term rentals.
