(Dublin, OH) On Monday, October 12, 2020, Dublin City Council voted to regulate short-term rentals, such as Airbnb, in the City of Dublin. These regulations allow for short-term rentals in the City, while maintaining the residential character of Dublin neighborhoods.
The ordinance includes the following regulations:
- All hosts must complete an application prior to listing a Dublin residence for a short-term rental and must obtain a permit annually.
- Hosts may rent out a unit for a maximum of two weeks per calendar year; this maximum may be split into up to two increments up to seven days each.
- Hosts must submit a form to the City before each renting period detailing the duration of the rental and number of people staying.
- Those who conduct short-term rentals and fail to register with the City could face a $250 fine for violating City code on a first offense.
Columbus, along with several other U.S. cities, have adopted similar ordinances to regulate short-term rentals.
The ordinance will take effect 30 days after the vote.
