Wednesday, August 1st, San Diego City Council met and read into law new short-term vacation rental (STVR) regulations after hearing the public testimony of hundreds of San Diegans. Despite a long and contentious meeting, the new STVR regulations passed by a 6-2 vote.
Below are 5 takeaways from the new regulations.
- Whole home rental will require a Short Term Residential Occupancy License while downtown and certain coastal communities now require a 3 night minimum stay.
- Home share rental now requires a Short Term Residential Occupancy License, if the property has 4 or more bedrooms, and must take place in host's primary residence.
- Short Term Residential Occupancy Licenses expire yearly and will only be granted for a host's primary residence and one additional unit on the same parcel of land.
- The host is responsible for responding, in person or by telephone, to all complaints, including those of nuisance activity, within one hour of receipt and must take action to resolve the matter.
- The host is required to keep records, for a period of three years, of all short term residential occupancy transactions and to provide this to the City Manager upon request.
