Airbnb / Short Term Rental Regulation Summary

You MUST live at the property for at least 9 months in a calendar year. If you own a property with multiple units (duplex, triplex, etc) and live in one of the units, you can short-term rent your unit plus only ONE additional unit (but you cannot short term rent “accessory dwelling units” permitted on or after Jan 1, 2017). You must get a short-term rental permit, get an inspection, and collect and pay “hotel taxes.” But you don’t need to also get a business license
