The Roseville City Council adopted an ordinance at its Monday, February 8 meeting regulating short-term rental properties in the city. The ordinance requires licensing and minimum stays for non-owner occupied units.
In the ordinance, short-term rental properties are considered to be units rented for 30 or fewer consecutive days. These type of rentals are typically booked on websites like Airbnb or VRBO.
The ordinance includes licensing and minimum stay requirements for non-owner occupied properties. Owner-occupied properties are exempt from both requirements. Short-term rentals will also be required to pay the city’s three percent lodging tax, previously required only of hotels in Roseville.
The on-season minimum stay requirement will be 10 days from May through September, with off-season minimum stays from October through April set at seven days.
The ordinance also allows the city to suspend or revoke licenses for noise, parking or other nuisance violations, and for criminal behavior.
Residents who currently own rental property of less than five units will be receiving a letter explaining the new regulations and how to apply for the Short-Term Rental License in order to offer rentals less than 30 days.
