Short Term Rentals (AirBnb, VRBO)

The City of Seattle is proposing to amend the Land Use Code in order to define and add standards for short-term rental uses and modify the definition and standards for bed and breakfast uses.

 

The legislation would establish a new definition for “short-term rental” as a type of lodging use and establish standards for short-term rentals, including an annual limit of 90 nights for housing units that are not the primary residence of the short-term rental operator. The legislation includes requirements that all short-term rentals provided at the primary residence of the operator that rent more than 90 nights in a year have a short-term rental license from the City. The legislation would also modify the definition of “bed and breakfast” as a type of lodging use and modify the standards for bed and breakfasts as an accessory use in residential zones.

 

Public Hearing
July 20, 2016, 9:30 a.m.
Seattle City Council Chambers
City Hall: 600 Fourth Avenue, 2nd Floor. 

Written comment can be made to Tim.Burgess@seattle.gov and should be received by July 19, 2016, at 5 p.m.
