Draft Survey of Short-Term Rental Legislation

Piggybacking on yesterday's blog post about the proposed legislation to restrict Illinois municipalities from regulating short-term rentals (e.g., AirBNB), the Land Use Prof Blog just posted a survey they conducted on state legislation on short-term rentals.  You can read the story here and check out the draft survey here.  

It's interesting to see what other states have done or are contemplating doing in connection with the regulation of short-term rentals. According to the draft survey, most states have not adopted statutes restricting local regulation. However, there are a few that have state laws, including California (notice requirements), Arizona (preempts local regulation), and New York (state ban). Others have introduced legislation, but have not yet enacted any, including Idaho, Hawaii, Nebraska, Pennsylvania (and as I mentioned yesterday, Illinois).

This issue is certain to gain more legislative interest as the popularity of short-term rentals increases.
