Sacramento Approves New Short-Term Rental Requirements


Property owners and some renters will be able to offer rooms for rent in the city of Sacramento on a limited basis.

The Sacramento City Council voted Tuesday to require a person to acquire a short-term rental permit before occasionally renting out a home or room. The person acquiring a permit would also pay a transit occupancy tax.

Permit holders would be limited to 90 days of renting per year.

More frequent renting would require a bed-and-breakfast permit.

The city manager's office would issue the short-term rental permits.

No more than six people would be allowed in a home with a permit at any one time for any gathering.

The person applying must have approval of the owner and the owner must live in the home for at least 184 days each year.
