Portland, Oregon Propose Phase 2 Regulations for airbnb Licensing in Apartments and Condos

From City of Portland, Bureau of Planning & Sustainability, October 20, 2014

  • In July 2014, Portland, Oregon’s City Council approved a new licensing procedure for short-term rental sin single-family homes and duplexes. Now, a Taskforce run by the Mayor’s office is proposing regulations that would extend short-term rentals to apartments and condos. A key element is set a cap of 1 unit per building or up to 10% of units in larger buildings. Notification of neighbors and approval by Homeowner’s Association or Property Owners is also┬árequired.
  • If licensed, a property resident can vacate their property for 90 days a year and rent it as a host-absent Vacation Rental. For the time being host-absent vacation short-term rentals longer than 90 days remain illegal.
