Council Votes on Vacation Rentals

On July 16th , San Diego City Council voted to adopt compromise regulation regarding short-term vacation rentals. Under the new rules, only residents who live in homes in San Diego can rent them out to visitors up to six months every year. Granny flats were not part of the discussion, and under current rules cannot be used for vacation rentals. This vote was crucial as it finally established a set of rules and regulations for vacation rentals in San Diego. The new regulation will begin mid-2019. In response, a referendum has been launched by short-term vacation rental companies who believe the new rules are too strict.
