A Brief Understanding of STR Compliance
Short Term Rental Rules & Regulations
With short term rental properties on the rise, it is no wonder that a host of rules and regulations from various states, municipalities, homeowners’ associations, and the like have appeared. It is a complex problem that involves issues such as economic stimulus, affordable housing, public safety, and individual property rights. Every single community seems to be taking a differing approach, trying to balance the needs of local business owners and residents. This has led to a rather haphazard patchwork of regulations and punishments intended to mitigate the growth of new rental properties.
Cities around the world are performing licensing requirements to manage existing rentals better as well as to limit the spread of new ones. Although needing to acquire a license is only effective if compliance can be tracked and monitored. With harsh usage laws, it has driven most hosts underground. Making registration difficult to process, heavy taxes, and without a way to manage compliance beneficially. They actively try to hide their identities and addresses to avoid taxes and regulations. In fact, in only 3 out of the 365 cities surveyed by AirDNA did the majority of Airbnb listings have a license number displayed. This is another area where software that analyzes short term property rental can be effective.
Our Ultimate Goal: Serving You
Monitoring is always top of mind for Worth Ross since property rules and restrictions need to be enforced and compliance with community rules is an ongoing issue (with short term rentals becoming more and more the norm). Property Guard helps us to monitor 24/7 and to receive alerts when owners (in our communities) are potentially breaking HOA rules by listing their unit on short-term rental websites. It’s truly been a major timesaver for us, and time is money.
– Property Management Company
When you are managing over 10,000 apartments, it is so easy for things to fall through the cracks. Managing short term rental occurrences without a state of the art system has become impossible. Property Guard to the rescue. We now have a certain peace of mind that we are alerted when our communities are being listed on short term rental sites and we can take action well before we have a problem on our hands. Thank you, Property Guard.
– Private Multi Family Communities (over 300 apartments)
As a town known for our thriving downtown business area, and our summer cottages (bringing increased tourism), we knew that permitting and enforcement was becoming harder to handle. While we welcome tourism and love the growth, we also want to do it correctly and eliminate or at least reduce complaints. Property Guard has helped us to create and launch custom algorithms that allow us to monitor the way we need to.
– US City (Northeast)
Growth in funding commercial mortgages is surging. However, it can be difficult to identify restrictions in an area that may not allow for the business/loan purpose. Working with Property Guard allows our underwriters to expedite the process and have peace of mind. We highly recommend PG for any organization underwriting these types of situations. It allows us to offer expertise that could be painstakingly slow to gather without them.
– Private Lending Institution
Being a tourist area, we knew that we would have to deal with short term rental permitting, but we never expected the growth that we’ve seen. We simply can’t manage it without an automated process. Property Guard has allowed us to monitor all short term rentals in our jurisdiction and be able to alert (if needed) both the owner/host and the short term rental company very quickly. Now we feel confident that we have a handle on the short term rentals in Wildwood, NJ.
