Short Term (Vacation) Rentals
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 rental limit of 90 nights for housing units that are not the primary residence of the owner. 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.
The legislation includes requirements that all short-term rentals and bed and breakfasts have a business license from the City, and that short-term rentals and bed and breakfasts that rent more than 90 nights in a year have a short-term rental license from the City.
