DC’s New AirBnB Law

In Real Estate by Richard Bianco

On Tuesday October 2, 2018, the D.C Council took a preliminary, unanimous, vote to enact one of the most stringent regulations in the Country on short-term housing rentals such as Airbnb , HomeAway, and VRBO.

If the bill becomes law in its present form, homeowners would only be allowed to rent out rooms in their main residence for 90 days per year while they are absent – so called “vacation rentals.” However, there is no limit on rentals while the host is present, i.e. spare bedroom “house sharing.”
