Hi, I read the news that hosts in LA need to pay $89/year to city planning department and only allow to rent up to 120 days per year.
I built an ADU in the back yard with city permit and a separate address than my main house. so the cottage has its own address. does this still apply to me since I am not renting out my primary resident place?
uggh that sucks. cities are tryinig so hard to crack down. i'm sure others like chi and nyc will follow soon.
if this were me i would probably consult with a real estate attorney (easier said than done and more expensive) unless you want to read the state/count law/code which is a bunch of legalese anyways. i would be very VERY hesitant to rely on the advise from anyone here who is not a real estate professional practicioner. and even though i'd keep an eyebrow up.
good luck. it will be interesting to follow this thread
NYC is also strict they haven’t come up with the maximum number of rentals days yet instead under 30 day rentals the max number of guests is 2 regardless of how big your space is.
Unfortunately I think you need to pay for legal advice in your case.
The restriction I mentioned is max number of guests (which is 2) for transient rentals.
We do not exceed 2 guests for transient rentals, not sure what you mean by way around it that is the regulation.
APRIL 30 2019 MEETING OF LAVHRA - Please read:
Tomorrow, APRIL 30, 2019, the Los Angeles Vacation Home Rental Alliance (LAVHRA) will host its fifth action meeting.
Action meetings thus far have been a great success, and serve as an ideal opportunity to network with homeowners, property managers, and business owners.
Now more than ever, it is vital for homeowners to speak up and steadily increase the pressure on Councilmembers prior to the July 1st deadline. The Planning Committee has started the drafting process – however regulations are not yet set, so the time is now to shape the vacation home rental ordinance and ensure it aligns with reasonable guidelines for the homeowners of Los Angeles.
The action meeting agenda will consist of the following – introductions, handwritten letters, and video testimonials. We will notify you all immediately of any City Hall updates, but in the meantime, these action meetings are crucial to ensure the vacation home rental industry continues to thrive in our city.
Action Meeting Details:
Date: Tuesday, April 30th, 2019
Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: 7825 Hillside Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90046

Join LAVHRA Today!
LAVHRA is a collection of owners, managers, small business representatives and local groups that are working to protect the future of vacation rentals in Los Angeles’ tourism driven community. Traditional vacation rentals provide income for local families and jobs for small businesses, and the benefits of STRs can be felt throughout Los Angeles’ unique communities.
is one of the best ways to keep up with developments on this issue which can destroy everything if we do not give input before decisions are made by the committee/board for the city.
I just joined LA VHRA. Also, the AirBnb community leader is Cynthia Chou:: email@example.com
She’s the one who is helping navigate all of these questions. Last I heard, the council is behind in trying to make all of this registration stuff become a reality. They realized they don’t have the know how or the man power to get homes registered etc. but I am sure Cynthia can update you on all the up to date ways on how to fight this and where it all stands.
Peace and love::
