A short-term vacation rental is any dwelling unit or residence including, but not limited to, any unit or group of units in a condominium, cooperative or apartment building that is rented in whole or in part to a transient occupant for a period of less than 30 days or one calendar month, whichever is less.
Responsible parties must obtain a Certificate of Use (CU) prior to listing and advertising the property on any peer-to-peer platform. The cost is $36.70 per certificate. Upon applying for a CU, a property inspection will be scheduled. The cost for the inspection is $89.97, plus a $9.50 surcharge, for a total of $136.17. The CU must be renewed annually, and the property will be re-inspected at the time of renewal. If a property does not pass inspection, or if it has outstanding fines or liens for violations of this code, a CU will not be granted.See more about short-term vacation rentals
