Summer vacation time is approaching and you may be considering renting a house instead of a hotel. When choosing which service to use, consider everything from reservation guarantees to guest fees.

Airbnb recently announced what it calls the biggest change to its service in a decade. Four million hosts on the service offer everything from private rooms to full properties for rent. The company’s summer 2022 release adds the ability to search for property rentals by categories such as treehouses, caves, castles and farmhouses. Airbnb co-founder and CEO Brian Chesky said in an announcement video that one of his favorite categories is called OMG!

‘You have properties where you’re like, I can’t believe this even exists,’ he said, pointing to a yellow submarine available for hire in the middle of the woods in New Zealand.

The company also now offers Split Stays which will create a small two house itinerary whenever you are looking for a stay longer than a week. Chesky showed the example of finding national parks and the app suggested a few days at a property in Joshua Tree, followed by a few days at a rental near Zion.

The final announcement included protections for customers called Aircover. It includes reservation protection if a host cancels your reservation within one month of your arrival, check-in guarantee in case you can’t access a rental for whatever reason, and a Get-What-You-Booked guarantee if tenants have concerns about cleanliness or amenities that are not as advertised. In all three cases, guests will first contact their host to see if they can resolve the issue. If not, tenants contact Airbnb within 72 hours of discovering the issue. If the company finds that the problem is protected by AirCover, it will issue a full or partial refund or find customers a better or similar place to stay.

Airbnb claims to be the only vacation rental company to offer these benefits. Admittedly, I haven’t seen the Split Stay option on other vacation rental sites, but Booking.com has the ability to browse by property type, such as farm stays, boats, and vacation rentals. luxury tents.

Plus, while no other company I researched offered the option of refunds for last-minute host cancellations, check-in issues, or issues with the property, Vrbo says it will find you. another place to stay in one of these cases. Guests should let this know within the first 12 hours and are encouraged to contact the property manager first.

Airbnb, Vrbo, Booking.com and Vacasa all have a 24/7 helpline for customers to call for help.

Vrbo has fraud protection. If a payment somehow ends up in the hands of someone other than the Host, the Company will reimburse the Guest. And in an email, the company wrote that the majority of properties have the option to pay when you stay “unlike other online travel agencies where customers are almost always charged at the time of booking.”

Now let’s talk about fees. It can sometimes be shocking to see the difference between the first price displayed on a property’s page and the final cost after taxes and fees are added.

Airbnb says its service fee helps cover the cost of services like 24-hour customer support. The website notes that “most customer service fees are less than 14.2% of the subtotal reservation” and tenants will be able to see the charges during checkout before booking.

Vrbo’s website says its service fee covers the cost of secure transactions, product development, and customer service and the amount varies. But vacation rental marketing firm Logify shows that Vrbo’s fees are typically between 6-12% of the total booking.

Booking.com wrote in an email that it had “no booking fees or hidden and unexpected charges”.

But a comparison of a weekend condo rental in Park City, Utah shows that the website adds a service fee (which all the other companies had as well), as well as destination fees and tourist fees that did not appear on any other website.

Vrbo added damage insurance and all the websites I compared had cleaning fees. The total fees and taxes for this condo ranged from $383.17 (Airbnb) to $442.52 (Vrbo). Both Vrbo and Airbnb showed that Vacasa was actually the property manager for the condo and knowing that, I headed to their website to check the price. Vacasa had no service charge and the total fees and taxes were $350.40; a saving of $33 even on the cheapest option of the big three websites.

Cut out the middleman if possible and check these fees and taxes if price is important to your booking. But also keep in mind the booking guarantees that could make a big difference to the smooth running of your vacation. And don’t forget to scour the websites for those amazing properties you may have thought only existed in your dreams.

Dallas still hasn’t found a solution to short-term rentals https://abnmiamihotels.com/dallas-still-hasnt-found-a-solution-to-short-term-rentals/ Sun, 15 May 2022 07:01:53 +0000 https://abnmiamihotels.com/dallas-still-hasnt-found-a-solution-to-short-term-rentals/ Just before a recent briefing, Dallas City Manager TC Broadnax jokingly asked if council members would rather adjourn than discuss short-term rentals.

Just before a recent briefing, Dallas City Manager TC Broadnax jokingly asked if council members would rather adjourn than discuss short-term rentals. Like most jokes, it contained more than a grain of truth. As a city staff member later told council, “we are still struggling to identify STRs and confirm their existence in some cases.”

After four years of complaints and three task forces, the city still lacks a workable approach to a mess that residents have repeatedly told them is intolerable. The council’s inaction is a disservice to the rental industry, landlords looking to earn an income and residents overrun with party houses in their otherwise quiet neighborhoods.

Short-term rental properties, which are listed on sites like Airbnb and VRBO, allow landlords to open private homes to vacationers and other visitors for short stays as an alternative to a hotel room.

It’s inexcusable that the city hasn’t adopted formal regulations governing the location or operation of short-term rentals, which fall somewhere between the rules for hotels and single-family residences. Short-term rental properties are considered a hotel under city code and state tax law, and owners are required to pay hotel occupancy taxes. But while city code prohibits hotels from single-family residential neighborhoods, short-term rentals fall into a regulatory vacuum.

Council member Omar Narvaez said some short-term rentals in his district are illegally hosting large business events. And he said investors had recently acquired and converted eight of 10 properties in a new townhouse community in his neighborhood to STR, creating “a hotel in the middle of this residential neighborhood.” This type of behavior takes homes off the market, infuriates residents and exacerbates Dallas’ acute housing shortage.

Officially, the city says 1,174 short-term rental units are paying hotel taxes, which doesn’t include what’s estimated to be over 5,000 short-term rentals that are operating under the radar and not paying the tax. The city also does not handle complaints about short-term rentals. The city has compiled 112 complaints from 69 short-term rental locations since October 2020, but also admits those statistics grossly underestimate the scale of the problem.

Broadnax promised council members that city workers will present key elements of a new short-term rental ordinance in June as well as an option for council to design zoning requirements for short-term rentals. . We’re not sure zoning is the right regulatory tool, though we agree Dallas needs to set clear rules on future placement of short-term rentals, require landlords to register with the city, limit maximum occupancy, prohibit outdoor advertising on a property, require local emergency contact for the rental property, and include a process to revoke business licenses from repeat bad actors.

The result should protect neighbors from rowdy or illegal behavior, not chase short-term rental operators underground, and efficiently collect hotel taxes from all operators. Airbnb recently announced restrictions on one-night rentals for Memorial Day weekend to discourage disruptive parties. If SEO platforms can be proactive on Memorial Day, they can be all year round.

Short-term rentals are everywhere. Of those paying hotel taxes, 396 are in single-family areas, 380 in planned development districts, 100 in cluster housing, 81 in conservation districts and 30 in townhouse neighborhoods, for example. Residents and tenants want and need clarity. When will they get it?

Issues : I own a condo unit in a condominium complex of over 100 units. I am renting the unit as a short term rental on Airbnb. Some landlords have expressed aversion to short-term rentals and have called on council to make changes to bylaws that would ban short-term rentals. Can the council prevent me from renting my place on Airbnb? Please help me!

Content of the article

To respond: The short answer is: maybe! Short-term rentals in condominiums through online services such as Airbnb or Vrbo are tricky matters. A decision from the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench (Condominium Corporation No 042 5177 v Kuzio, 2020 ABQB 152) clarifies the status of short-term tenants, stating that such arrangements where no residential rental lease is concluded, result in the functional equivalent of a hotel stay, where the guests/tenants are not residential tenants of the owner, but occupy the unit as licensees for consideration.

A residential lease grants certain rights in the land to the tenant. The same does not apply to licenses to occupy units, as a license does not create any interest in the land itself.

Content of the article

And here’s the key to answering your question: Since nothing in the Condominium Act specifically prohibits condominiums from restricting short-term rentals (as opposed to residential rentals), short-term rentals are a permitted use of the property. unit of the owner unless the applicable statutes say otherwise. I assume, based on your question, that your bylaws are not clear on this point, hence the push for amendments. Check your status!

Useful advice: The decision of the Court of Queen’s Bench regarding short-term rentals is sound in my opinion. A condominium corporation has the power to restrict short-term rentals, but only if the restriction is set out in the bylaws. A condominium corporation cannot, under any board policy or rule, restrict the use of its unit by a landlord. Any valid restrictions on the use of units must be incorporated into the rules.

Airbnb’s redesign makes it much easier to find rentals for long-term stays and multi-stop trips https://abnmiamihotels.com/airbnbs-redesign-makes-it-much-easier-to-find-rentals-for-long-term-stays-and-multi-stop-trips/ Wed, 11 May 2022 19:48:57 +0000 https://abnmiamihotels.com/airbnbs-redesign-makes-it-much-easier-to-find-rentals-for-long-term-stays-and-multi-stop-trips/ Airbnb is opening up the world of travel even further with the company’s biggest update in a decade, which increases choices by 40% for travelers looking for stays of at least a week using a new technology called Split Stays, and also introduces inventive categories and more insurance coverage. “We have the biggest travel bounce […]]]>

Airbnb is opening up the world of travel even further with the company’s biggest update in a decade, which increases choices by 40% for travelers looking for stays of at least a week using a new technology called Split Stays, and also introduces inventive categories and more insurance coverage.

“We have the biggest travel bounce of the century ahead of us and I hope that when people check out our website or our new app, they’ll be reminded that there’s this really big world out there just waiting to be discovered – a world of possibilities,” said the CEO. said Brian Chesky. “You can live like a king in a castle and like a child in a treehouse or you can be like an explorer on a ship. If you love design, you can sleep in a Frank Lloyd Wright house, like I Did it in Ann Arbor, Michigan a month ago.

The revamp kicked off this morning with Split Stays, which combines two home rentals into back-to-back stays, creating an itinerary that can be built around location or theme.

Previously, listings only appeared in search if they were available for an entire stay, a particular issue for long stays of a week or more, which account for more than half of Airbnb guest stays in the country. course of the last three months. The new feature nearly doubles the search options by automatically pairing two lists that together will populate the search parameters.

A look at how Split Stays is bringing new accommodation combos to travellers.

What the team discovered while testing Split Stays was the ability to create itineraries based on themes. For example, if you’re looking for a National Parks-themed getaway, you might find two homes in the National Parks area back to back instead of one. “What makes it so revolutionary is not what it is today, but what it can be,” Chesky says. “This represents the opportunity for Airbnb to begin creating personalized itineraries with machine learning, artificial intelligence, and personalized curation.”

Accordingly, the launch also includes 56 new themed categories, which include accommodation types such as A-frames, cabins, castles, mud houses, houseboats, treehouses, windmills and yurts; activity categories such as golf, surfing and skiing; and types of places like beaches, cities, Moroccan riads and Italian trulli. There’s even a category for creative spaces that includes recording studios and green-screen sound stages, as well as houses with grand pianos. Of the 6 million listings on the platform, 4.4 million unique homes are now in one category, and some in more than one.

Categories also offer additional and personalized data. For example, if you search in the design category, each listing will have a descriptor indicating who the designer is, but if it is national parks, the same line will detail the park it is close to.

Perhaps the most notable category is one of Chesky’s favorites, simply titled “OMG!” with a spaceship logo. There’s no other way to describe it than “I can’t believe this exists,” he says, pointing to a zigzag house in Costa Rica and a yellow submarine in New Zealand as examples. .

Work session explores short-term rentals in Woodland Park, city sets highest water restrictions | Mail from Pikes Peak https://abnmiamihotels.com/work-session-explores-short-term-rentals-in-woodland-park-city-sets-highest-water-restrictions-mail-from-pikes-peak/ Tue, 10 May 2022 06:00:00 +0000 https://abnmiamihotels.com/work-session-explores-short-term-rentals-in-woodland-park-city-sets-highest-water-restrictions-mail-from-pikes-peak/ In a rare joint meeting of the City Council and the Woodland Park Planning Commission, city officials on May 5 got a glimpse of staff research into short-term rentals.

In a rare joint meeting of the City Council and the Woodland Park Planning Commission, city officials on May 5 got a glimpse of staff research into short-term rentals.

Assistant City Manager Rob Felts presented the city’s findings and outlined next steps. The definitions were only tentative until the Planning Commission and council officially axed them, but they offer a starting point, Felts said.

City staff spoke with short-term rental owners, residents, and business and hotel owners to create a list of possible issues, including:

Safety: Do short-term rentals meet the same safety standards as those required of hotels?

Equality between hotel and short-term rental: do they have similar property tax rates?

Erosion of community culture: is there too much? Fels says contrary to popular opinion, the town does not have 300 short-term rentals. At Woodland Park, there are about 130 licensed short-term rentals and perhaps another 50 that are not licensed but should be.

Crime: Research could not confirm that crime rates are higher near short-term rentals.

Short-term rental regulations could hurt tourism: Many say the city doesn’t have enough accommodations, but Felts said staff haven’t determined whether local accommodations are filling up every weekend.

The regulation of short-term rentals affects the livelihoods of their owners. Felts said many landlords quit their jobs to handle short-term rentals, 90% of which are whole-home rentals. There are currently no statistics available that determine how many short-term rentals are owner-operated and how many are non-owner-operated.

Short-term rentals affect the availability of affordable housing. The conversion of long-term rentals to short-term rentals reduces the number of accommodations available for the local workforce.

These questions will be explored further in the coming weeks.

Felts also presented research on how other cities and towns in Colorado regulate their short-term rentals, using high registration and registration renewal fees, code enforcement, restricted locations, lower fees for owner-occupied short-term rentals, safety inspections and other tools.

The next step for Woodland Park is to have a community forum where residents can voice their concerns. City manager Michael Lawson said that is likely to happen within the next month. Eventually, the planning commission will begin to review possible regulations, and the city council will give final approval or deny any changes to the code.

At the regular council meeting following the business session, council approved Tier 2 water restrictions. Utilities Director Kip Wiley said Tier 2 is the city’s highest restrictions. , allowing residents to water only twice a week and only at certain times.

“We have to prepare for several dry years in a row,” he said. “It’s the responsible thing to do.”

Outdoor watering restrictions and indoor conservation tips are outlined on the city’s website at city-woodlandpark.org/190/Water-Restrictions-Conservation. These restrictions are effective from Friday.

Wiley also presented three contracts for approval:

Baldwin Street – Rampart Range Road/Kellys Rehabilitation Contract between the Town of Woodland Park and Kiewit Infrastructure Co. in the amount of $2,277,264. This contract also includes an alternate $700,000 option to run fiber ducts while the roadway is open, preparing for the installation of the 24 fiber lines the city already owns. If this option is chosen, the expense will be brought back to the approval of the council. Several board members expressed the hope that private sector funding will be available to meet the monetary burden of installing the fiber ducts.

Street and parking restriction contract between the city and American Striping Company in the amount of $102,185. This includes all city streets and parking lots.

Parking Lot Sealing, Filling and Crack Sealing Coating Contract between the city and A-1 Chipseal Co. in the amount of $104,216.

Mayor Hilary LaBarre set public comments at three minutes and asked anyone who wished to speak during public comments on non-agenda items and for specific agenda items to sign before the meeting.

Zoom attendees should also register before the meeting at city-woodlandpark.org/FormCenter/City-Clerk-5/Request-To-Make-Public-Comment-During-Of-68. They can also register to make a public comment and more under the “How do I…” tab on the homepage of the city’s website.

Board liaison positions have been established for the following boards and committees:

Council of Pikes Peak Area Governments: Mayor Hilary LaBarre as primary city representative and Mayor Pro Tem Kellie Case as secondary representative.

Keep Woodland Park Beautiful: Councilman Frank Conors.

Public Services Advisory Board: Robert Zuluaga and Catherine Nakai, Board Members.

Colorado Municipal League Policy Committee: LaBarre and Conors.

Main Street Program: Nakai.

Parks and Recreation Advisory Council: Cases.

Historic Preservation Committee: Councilor David Ott.

Seizure Investigation Fund: Ott.

Town Center Development Authority: Councilor Rusty Neal.

Military Affairs: Conors. This is a new liaison position.

The board nominated Kathy Evans and re-appointed incumbents Jerry Smith and Teri Baldwin to the Parks and Recreation Advisory Council. A third incumbent, Susan Janicki, re-nominated for her post, but in keeping with a recently established tradition, her reappointment was delayed until she could appear before the board in person.The three Teller County commissioners – Dan Williams, Erik Stone and Bob Campbell – attended the meeting to congratulate the newly elected council members and talk about past and future collaborations between the county and the city.

Woodland Park Police Chief Chris Deisler outlined his plan to create a police community engagement forum.

City Clerk Suzanne Leclercq introduces and thanks the eight electoral judges who contributed to the smooth running of the April 5 municipal elections despite a major power outage at City Hall.

Lawson recognized Leclercq and his hard work for National Clerks’ Week. “Our theme for this year is ‘Don’t be a fool for our City Clerk,'” he said.

The resumption of air transport gives a big boost to vacation rentals https://abnmiamihotels.com/the-resumption-of-air-transport-gives-a-big-boost-to-vacation-rentals/ Sun, 08 May 2022 13:30:00 +0000 https://abnmiamihotels.com/the-resumption-of-air-transport-gives-a-big-boost-to-vacation-rentals/ Although air travel has yet to fully recover from the disruptions of the past two years, consumers are flying in greater numbers in 2022, providing a strong comeback for the industry.

Although air travel has yet to fully recover from the disruptions of the past two years, consumers are flying in greater numbers in 2022, providing a strong comeback for the industry.

The Transportation Security Administration says nearly 230 million people have flown so far this year, up 71% year-over-year and 46% more than in 2020. Although it is still lower than the 269 million people who flew in 2019 at the same time of year, air travel is back, baby!

It appears in Airbnbit is (ABNB -5.07%) nights and experiences booked, a key growth indicator for the vacation rental company, which topped 100 million for the first time in the first quarter. In fact, gross nights booked in urban areas increased by 80% over the period, surpassing 2019 levels, while trips in non-urban areas were 80% higher than in 2019.

And while everyone expects summer travel to be even stronger, before you break out the confetti and champagne, know that clouds are forming on the horizon for the hospitality industry.

A risky future

The Federal Reserve just raised interest rates by half a percentage point and said it was willing to raise them another half a percentage point in June and July to help fight runaway inflation . Earlier, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard said it was a “fantasy” to believe inflation could be fought without a dramatic rise in interest rates, noting approvingly that the former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker increased them to 20% in the early 1980s.

It also had the effect of bringing the economy to a halt, but Bullard said backtracking may be needed to get inflation under control.

Consumers are already feeling the impact of rising prices and the economy contracted more than 1% in the first quarter, meaning the Fed’s brakes could bring non-essential travel to a screeching halt.

Airbnb stock has fallen 13% since the Fed announced its interest rate, giving up all the gains it had enjoyed the day after its excellent earnings report was released.

stay and rest

Long-term stays, those lasting 28 days or more, are a catalyst for hope for Airbnb’s future, and they have become the vacation rental leader’s fastest-growing segment in terms of trip duration. As a percentage of its business, extended stay footfall has doubled since the first quarter of 2019 and now represents 21% of gross nights booked on Airbnb, compared to 13% three years ago. Overall, 48% of gross nights booked were for stays of at least seven nights.

The strength of this category helped Airbnb increase revenue by 70% year-over-year to $1.5 billion. This number also benefited from higher average daily rates (ADRs), $168 for the quarter, up 31% from 2019 and 5% year-over-year.

Still, that makes the cost of staying at an Airbnb comparable to a night in a hotel. One of the original benefits of staying at an Airbnb was the lower cost, but hotel ADRs are around $150, meaning Airbnb is no longer the low-cost leader.

There are certainly other benefits to staying with the vacation rental company, but especially during times of inflation or an economic downturn, travelers can become more price sensitive when deciding where to stay.

Troubled Times Ahead

Still, Airbnb has used the resumption of travel to its advantage. Although it reported a net loss of $19 million for the first quarter, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) totaled $229 million, compared to a loss of $59 million at the end of the year. same period last year. And the company expects to report net profits for the first time this year.

Airbnb also saved up a war chest, ending the first quarter with $8.3 billion in cash and cash equivalents, which, coupled with less than $2 billion in long-term debt, gives it plenty of flexibility.

The company produced $1.2 billion in free cash flow last quarter, putting it on a solid path, but investors should remain cautious about buying as Airbnb’s valuation remains elevated. The growth stock could be down 18% since the start of the year, but it could fall even further if economic difficulties reduce travel demand in the months ahead.

It takes longer to start regulating short-term rentals, recommends Dallas City Attorney https://abnmiamihotels.com/it-takes-longer-to-start-regulating-short-term-rentals-recommends-dallas-city-attorney/ Wed, 04 May 2022 23:47:00 +0000 https://abnmiamihotels.com/it-takes-longer-to-start-regulating-short-term-rentals-recommends-dallas-city-attorney/ It takes longer to start regulating short-term rentals, recommends Dallas City Attorney What the city attorney revealed to council members on Wednesday is that if the city rushes to regulate STRs by creating a permitting process, it could grandfather STRs in single-family neighborhoods.

Several Dallas neighborhoods are trying to get the city council to crack down on short-term rentals. Neighbors have complained about noise and crime.

What the city attorney revealed to council members on Wednesday is that if the city rushes to regulate STRs by creating a permitting process, it could grow into STRs in single-family neighborhoods. The city attorney therefore recommended that the city determine where it wants to obtain STRs before beginning to issue permits.

Dallas landlord Angela Sanders has asked the city to keep short-term rentals out of single-family neighborhoods. She said the STRs were taking homes away from families with children who needed them.

“Give them the option of having a backyard instead of a concrete patch that belongs to someone else,” she said.

It’s a sentiment Councilman Omar Narvaez confirmed happened in West Dallas.

“Of these 10 townhouses, eight were purchased by STR companies. Only two will be actual residents of the townhouse community,” he said. “So we literally created a hotel in the middle of this residential community.”

The City of Dallas is still struggling to develop regulations for short-term rentals

Councilman Adam Bazaldua said the city has had enough and needs to act now with a permitting process.

“We need oversight of an industry that has been cracking down,” he said.

Bazaldua argued that the city should start collecting hotel occupancy taxes on rentals.

“We can use regulatory fees collected for code staff who deal directly with STRs. We now have four years of inaction,” he said.

Councilman Paul Ridley argued that Dallas has an advantage in being slow to act: it is able to learn from the mistakes of other cities.

“Once a permit is issued for an STR, they get — according to court rulings — a grandfathered right to maintain that status. This happened in Austin,” he explained. “When they had a problem and wanted to eliminate them, the court decided it was too late.”

Dallas short-term rental recommendations come despite concerns from some council members

Later, a Dallas city attorney revealed that the city needs a lot more time to make sure it doesn’t grant rights to STRs that it can’t later revoke.

“If it can take up to two years, do we do nothing for two years? Is that your recommendation?” Councilwoman Jaynie Schultz asked.

“That would be the safest approach,” the city attorney said.

“I’m going to ask a few more questions as we digest this brand new information that I think is surprising to everyone here at Horseshoes,” Schultz said.

The Dallas city manager said the city could likely complete zoning work in six to seven months while simultaneously working on regulations.

City staff will work to define what STRS are and will likely refer to them as “lodging,” a use that is not permitted in single-family neighborhoods.

OPINION AND COMMENT

Brett Ermer developed this short-term rental community on Merlane Drive off I-85 near Sugar Creek Road in Charlotte. It’s called North End Park and Ermer lives in one of the 24 houses there.

Short-term rental platforms like Airbnb and VRBO have revolutionized travel by providing comfortable and affordable accommodations for families, tourists, out-of-town entrepreneurs and others – much like Uber. and Lyft have revolutionized transportation.

They also provide tax revenue and income to individuals, retirees, and small business owners like me.

I developed a community of 22 short-term rental homes on I-85 in northeast Charlotte. I live there too. My homes are among more than 3,170 active short-term rentals in Charlotte, up from about 1,300 in 2018.

However, with all growth comes growing pains.

The City of Charlotte dropped all of its proposed new regulations regarding short-term rentals on Friday, but is expected to revisit them once pending court cases and possible state legislation are decided.

The City had discussed imposing bylaws to deal with noise, traffic and parking complaints from people residing next to or near short-term rentals. I hope that when city officials take up the issue of short-term rentals, they will recognize that the pros of these rentals far outweigh the cons – and that the cons such as noise complaints, traffic issues parking/parking and property damage is the result of a small number of individuals who do not follow our city’s laws or the rules set by most short-term rental owners.

Over the past decade, short-term rentals have steadily captured hotel market share through listing platforms such as Airbnb and VRBO. While some owners of short-term rentals have apparently been less than diligent about activities on their properties, there are responsible owners and operators who rely on rental income to earn a living or support their retirement.

As a developer, landlord, and permanent resident in my short-term rental community, I think the City should focus on the real problem that needs to be solved: tenants are breaking the law and abusing private property by throwing parties at home.

Before abandoning its plan, the city was considering a registry of short-term rental owners, limiting parties and events, requiring a 400-foot distance between all short-term rental units and revoking a landlord’s privileges. if more than three violations were cited in a year on a given property.

While I applaud the idea of ​​trying to eliminate noise complaints and other negative impacts from disruptive people, the City’s original proposal was flawed for several reasons.

The main problem is that the vast majority of owners and operators of short-term rentals are doing everything they can to prevent house parties and other disruptive behavior because it results in thousands of dollars in property damage, negative reviews and phone calls at 1am on weekends. .

The people who should be punished for throwing parties are the tenants, many of whom will lie about the intended use of the property and break house rules.

The 400 foot distancing requirement the city had considered is arbitrary and creates myriad issues regarding who can own/operate short-term rentals. For example, my homes are in the same subdivision, located about 20 feet apart and several hundred feet from other residential and commercial properties. Such a distancing requirement would bankrupt my business — and more than a dozen cleaning and maintenance workers, many of whom are single mothers.

I installed cameras along the entire street to monitor parties, traffic, noise and more. In the past year, only two parties have occurred out of 8,030 rental nights available. Both were closed as quickly as possible.

As the owner of a short-term rental community, I believe that when the city takes up this issue, it will need to focus on tenants who are breaking the law and abusing private property. The City should establish by-laws to deal with the negative aspects of noise complaints and traffic/parking issues, but without complicating the operation of short-term rental owners.
