When deciding whether to become an Airbnb host, it is important for you to understand the laws in your region or city. As a platform and online marketplace we do not provide legal advice, but we want to provide resources that may help you better understand applicable laws and regulations.

Relevant information for Hosts
Hosts who apply for a business license are required to provide proof of liability insurance coverage with a $500,000 minimum amount.
Zoning restrictions include a 660-foot density limit between short-term rentals for all single family and multi-family homes. For example, short-term rentals may only be used for dwelling, lodging, or overnight accommodations. Other commercial events that are typically held at banquet facilities, such as weddings, parties, and receptions, are prohibited at short-term rentals.
The City conducts property inspections of short-term rental properties as part of the Conditional Use Verification (CUV) Permit approval process.
The inspector will verify the number of bedrooms in the house and will check for safety requirement compliance. Check the short-term rental application instructions for more information about the inspection process, including a detailed list.
