Attractions like Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center – combined with a desire among visitors to avoid hotels – make Anaheim a popular location among users of Airbnb, Vrbo, HomeAway, and other sites.
The Regulatory Roller Coaster of Anaheim’s Short-Term Rentals
But many owners have found the local regulatory environment daunting. Some recent history: In 2019, following complaints from property owners, the City of Anaheim reversed a ban and phase-out of short-term vacation rentals and allowed most owners with permits to keep operating.
The Current Lay of the Land
Under these rules, short-term vacation rental owners in Anaheim, California who opted to shut down by August 2019 must do so. Short-term rentals located where homeowner associations have banned them must close by December 2022, but those with permits can relocate elsewhere in Anaheim. Other than relocations, for now, permits for new vacation rentals aren’t being granted.
Meeting City’s Compliance Requirements
Vacation rental owners will continue to pay the City of Anaheim’s transient occupancy tax. They must also comply with a strict set of “good neighbor” rules or risk losing their ability to legally operate.
Rules include having a local contact ready to respond around the clock, within 45 minutes, to complaints and violations; supplying contact information to neighbors; limiting guests to those ages 21 and above; and compliance with a “quiet time” from 10 pm to 9 am.
Steep Penalties for Non-Compliance
Punishment for violators is severe. Two major violations or 10 minor violations within a one-year period are “grounds to revoke a permit,” according to the Anaheim Fact Sheet on Short-Term Rentals. Fines run as high as $2,500 for owners/operators and up to $500 for guests.
The Rising Trend of Outsourcing Management
In this challenging environment, it’s no surprise that owners are turning to full-service vacation rental property management companies to ensure compliance with regulations – and handle everything from prospective renter inquiries arriving from sites like Airbnb to contact with renters and review management.
After all, many if not most Anaheim property owners don’t consider themselves experts at the vacation rental game and prefer to largely sit back and receive a direct deposit from their vacation rental management service each month.
