Dear Austin resident:
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â As the City of Austin begins its busy festival season with the upcoming South by Southwest music festival and related events, the Austin Code Department would like to remind both owners and renters of short-term rental properties to make sure properties are legally registered.
Owners of short-term rentals, properties rented for less than 30 days, should visit http://austintexas.gov/STRto get license requirements and other valuable information before advertising and renting property. Owners who violate the law could be subject to enforcement action, including fines of up to $2,000 a day.
Festival goers and other visitors are urged to make sure properties they rent are registered; licenses are required to be posted on site.
Both owners and renters are required to abide by the following rules in order to be good neighbors:
Owners and managers of short-term rentals are encouraged to visit the Austin Code Department website to keep up to date on short-term rental requirements. That site is: http://austintexas.gov/STR.
The Austin Code Department encourages residents and those living near homes being used as short-term rentals to use the Austin 3-1-1 mobile app on their cell phones to report STR problems. People can also call 3-1-1 if they have STR complaints. Calls may be anonymous.
