L.A. City Council voted Tuesday, passing significant changes to regulations on Airbnb and similar platforms. The new rules apply to the entire city of L.A.
Rent-controlled units are banned
Hosts can only rent out primary residence (must live for more than 6 months of the year in order to qualify as “primary residence”)
Registration with the City and payment of $89 required
Limit of 120 days per year unless special approval is obtained, in which case an $850 additional fee is required
Hosts cannot register for or operate more than one unit at a time
Non-residential buildings and temporary structures are banned
There is now a proposal from City Councilmembers Herb Wesson and Marqueece Harris-Dawson to regulate vacation rentals, which, as noted, are banned from Airbnb. The proposal calls for a permitting system and potential cap on number of registrants.
