I have an Airbnb (whole house) of several years in the heart of Atlanta and have just received a call from the City of Atlanta Zoning.

 

Seeking anyone with similar experience to share ideas and experiences on how to handle.

Can anyone advise what the current situation is for airbnb rental?  We are in an Unincorporated communities in DeKalb County, Georgia. 

 

Is it still required to apply for business license as well a hotel license?

After talking to a council member and to the person enforcing it, we would have to take it down till Airbnb resolve the issue with the city. If we don’t take it down,  we’ll be fined. You can do month to month, which is the minimum requirement but they don’t want anything to do with Airbnb or VRBO, not sure why. And someone here wrote they got fined. We will be taking ours down today after calling Airbnb CS.I  don’t have the energy to go to court and pay  fines. We will wait till it’s taken care of then come back. I believe sometime in March of 2022. If you come up on the searches, you will be in trouble according to the conversation. It’s all about the $. It sucks. Who’s behind all of this?

@Elisabeth352  I'm sure the restriction info will be helpful to Atlanta area hosts, but you aren't allowed to advertise your management company on this forum. There is a no advertising policy.

@Momi0  Yes this one and the 2 other threads in 2 other forum sections they dredged up and spammed. 🙂

 

I just love how people try to drum up business for themselves under the guise of "just trying to help out".
