DUBLIN, Ohio (WCMH) — An ordinance that regulates short-term rentals in Dublin, is now in effect for the city.
The ordinance, which was passed by city council Oct. 12, includes the following regulations:
- All hosts must apply for and receive an annual registration prior to listing a Dublin residence for short-term rental.
- Hosts may rent out a unit for a maximum of two weeks per calendar year; this maximum may be split into up to two increments up to seven days each.
- Hosts must submit a form to the City before each renting period detailing the duration of the rental, number of people staying, number of vehicles and total money charged for the rental.
- Those who conduct short-term rentals and fail to register with the City could face a $250 fine for violating City code on a first offense.
“These regulations allow for short-term rentals, such as Airbnb in the City, while maintaining the residential character of Dublin neighborhoods,” says Jennifer Readler, City of Dublin Law Director.
