A board of county commissioners is currently authorized to license
and regulate an owner or owner's agent of a lodging unit that is rented or
advertised for short-term stays, and owner's agent expressly excludes
an internet hospitality service.
The bill modifies this regulatory authority by clarifying that it
applies to lodging units that are available for short-term rentals, which are
rentals for less than 30 days, and by excluding a hotel unit from the scope
of the authority.
The bill also changes internet hospitality service to vacation
rental service (service), defines the term, and provides separate authority
for a board of county commissioners to regulate a service. This authority,
however, is limited to requiring:
  • An owner or owner's agent to include a rental license or
permit number, if applicable, in any listing for a lodging
unit on the service's website or other digital platform; and
  • The service to remove a listing from the service's website
or other digital platform, if properly notified by a county
that the owner of the listed lodging unit has had a local
short-term rental license or permit suspended or revoked or
has been issued a notice of violation or similar legal
process for not possessing a valid local short-term rental
license or permit or that the county has a prohibition on
short-term rentals that applies to the lodging unit. The
service has 7 days from receiving the county notification to
remove the listing.
To facilitate a service's ability to comply with a county ordinance,
a county, upon request of the owner of a hotel unit or a vacation rental
service on which the hotel unit is listed, is required to provide written
verification that the hotel unit is exempt from the ordinance because it is
not a lodging unit.
