Mayor Lee on Settlement Regarding Short-Term Rental Platforms
“We are pleased with the mediated settlement with short-term rental platforms. This protects our rental housing stock while allowing residents who follow the rules to gain income to help make ends meet.
When platforms cooperate with the City to only list lawfully registered hosts, we can more effectively enforce our laws and protect our rental housing supply. This settlement is a significant leap forward for enforcement of our short-term rental laws.
I want to thank City Attorney Dennis Herrera and his team for their hard work and conscientious efforts on this important issue.”
