Code Enforcement Launches New Short Term Rental Website By Felisa Cardona



Find out the terms of operating a short-term rental, find out if a short-term rental works in a neighborhood, or file a complaint on Code Enforcement’s new short-term rental website at str.sbcounty.gov.

“Due to the popularity of the short-term rental program, we wanted to offer residents, visitors and hosts a comprehensive resource where they can find everything in one place,” said Curt Hagman, Chairman of the Oversight Board. “It includes how to be a good neighbor (tenant) and how to be a good host (owner). “

“With the growing popularity of short-term rental properties in San Bernardino County, it is important that guests, hosts and residents of unincorporated communities understand the parameters of our vacation rental ordinance,” said vice chair of the supervisory board, Dawn Rowe. “This new website will be a valuable tool in increasing compliance and reducing complaints related to the short-term rental industry. ”

“Tourism is the bread and butter of many mountain businesses, and short-term rentals play a vital role in attracting tourists to our mountains,” said Second District Supervisor Janice Rutherford. “At the same time, we have to make sure that rental properties don’t become a nuisance for neighborhoods. The new website helps strike that balance by providing information and resources to tenants, landlords and residents. “

The new website features an interactive map that allows residents and visitors to see the location of licensed short-term rentals in the county and provides information on how to report unauthorized property being used as a short-term rental. There are also several answers to frequently asked questions on the site.

A “how-to” video on the website helps potential operators learn how to obtain a permit and information is available on how to stay in compliance to protect their investment.
