Short-Term Rental Registration
Under the short-term rental ordinance, rental properties are categorized as follows:
- A short-term rental property registration or rental license is not required for an owner who lives at the property, rents a room and stays at the property during the rental period.
- A short-term rental property registration is required for an owner who lives at the property, rents out an entire unit and leaves the property during the rental period.
- A rental license is required for the owner of a non-occupied rental property who rents out an entire unit. Only Tier 1 or Tier 2 rental licenses are eligible for this designation.
The ordinance applies to dwelling units rented for a period of fewer than 30 consecutive days per leasing period. The short-term rental registration fee is $50. You do not need to reapply if you have a valid rental license and are a Tier 1 or Tier 2 property. For more information about rental licensing fees, visit the Rental Licensing Fees webpage.
The applications for a short-term rental registration and rental license are available online, and can be submitted in person, by mail, or by fax.
