City Council finalizes ordinance to legalize Airbnb style rentals here

From the Portland Tribune, July 2, 2014

  • “Portland city commissioners informally agreed Wednesday to legalize Airbnb-style short-term rentals in single-family homes, if the host pays a $180 permit fee, gets their home inspected every six years, pays lodging taxes and lives on-site at least nine months out of the year. Hosts may use a third party, such as a family member or professional property manager, to run their in-home business, under an amendment approved Wednesday. City commissioners also will require hosts to post their permit number at their home and in any advertising, to provide more consumer protection.”
