It depends. There is a limit of 6% of the properties in a neighborhood that can be licensed as Short Term Rentals. If you live on the premises that you are using as a Short Term Rental the property would not apply against that cap limit. It would be best to contact us to see whether or not that cap limit has been met in your neighborhood.
No. Permission from the property owner is always required. If you are acting as an agent on behalf of the property owner a notarized statement from the property owner is required to complete the application process.
As soon as you become aware of the Ordinance it is in your best interest to cease operations of your Short Term Rental and immediately contact the Business License Division to avoid additional consequences. In order to continue operating your Short Term Rental you must meet all of the requirements, be properly approved and pay a penalty application fee of $1,000. If you are determined ineligible, you must cease operations as a Short Term Rental. Noncompliance will be met with recourse under penalty of law.
No. The City does not maintain a waiting list. It is the responsibility of the property owner to periodically check with the City to determine if a spot has become available in your neighborhood. Applications are reviewed and approved on a first come and first serve basis. All applications are valid for six months from the date of your application.
