Clark County releases proposed rules for short-term rentals
Short-term rentals must be legalized by July 1, 2022.
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Clark County has released proposed rules for short-term rentals like Airbnb and VRBO.
Last year, state lawmakers passed a law forcing the county to regulate the rentals. There are currently 10,000 illegal units in Nevada.
Among the locations they will not be allowed, Mt. Charleston and at apartment buildings.
Other restrictions include:
2 people per bedroom or 10 people maximum per unit
Licensee may not accept bookings of fewer than 2 nights
Multiple bookings prohibited
The unit may only be available to people within the same family or group during the same booking period
24-hour complaint hotline must be provided
Noise monitoring devices must be installed for rentals that are not within multifamily homes
Travis Schurr, who has several short-term rentals says he’s most concerned about the county using a random number generator that will select applications.
“These are people’s livelihoods, there’s around 16,000 short-term rentals in the valley and this looks like this is going to allow 2,800 to get licensed in the county,” Schurr said
The deadline to pass regulations is July 1.
Anyone that is likely to be affected by the proposed ordinance are asked to submit data or arguments to PublicCommentCCBL@ClarkCountyNV.gov by 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 18.
