From the Los Angeles Department of City Planning:
The City Council adopted the Home-Sharing Ordinance (CF 14-1635-S2) in December of 2018. To prevent the wholesale conversion of homes into rental properties, the legislation establishes a regulatory framework to restrict short-term rentals to one’s primary residence. The Home-Sharing Ordinance requires hosts who wish to engage in short-term rentals to register with the City and post their registration number on all advertisements. Further information on eligibility requirements and host responsibilities may be found on the City Planning Department’s Home Sharing webpage.
Eligible hosts may now apply to the program through the Home-Sharing Online Registration Portal. The City will begin enforcement of the Home-Sharing Ordinance on November 1, 2019. Anyone who continues to engage in or advertise short-term rental activity after November 1 without posting an approved registration number will be in violation of the Home-Sharing Ordinance. Sign up here to receive email updates on the Home-Sharing Program.
Los Angeles City Planning will be holding several Home-Sharing Program Information Sessions throughout October and November. Please fill out the RSVP form on the session you would like to attend: https://bit.ly/LAHomeShareRSVP
