Tampa Airbnb & Short-Term Rental Regulations are important to any investor or host thinking about starting a short-term rental property. We've pulled together data and information from government and other sources to make it easier for you to not just see the regulation and ordinances on short-term rentals, but also get an overview of the short-term rental activity and potential, real estate prices and trends, and population size and growth.
There are two layers of Airbnb regulations in the Tampa housing market to discuss: the state-level and county-level laws. Overall, Airbnb is legal in Tampa on the state level, but no official ordinance has been passed on the county-level. Hillsborough County, the county Tampa is located in, does not have any official short-term rental laws set in stone as of yet. The City Commission started discussing an ordinance in early March 2019. Some of the proposed Airbnb regulations in Tampa include maximum occupancy limits, parking requirements, and minimum living and safety requirements.See Regulation Source
