Do I have to register my Airbnb?

Yes, a property used for Airbnb or similar hosting services is considered a Short-Term Rental, whether that is a wholehome rental or a room rental. Short-Term Rental means any dwelling that is rented wholly or partly for a fee for less than thirty (30) consecutive days by persons other than the permanent occupant or owner from which the permanent occupant or owner receive monetary compensation. However, an exemption from the registration requirement may be requested if the short-term rental property is a single-family dwelling AND is occupied by the owner for more than 50 percent of the year. Exemptions must be requested on a case-by-case basis and are not guaranteed to be approved. Please contact Code Enforcement for further information.
