A. Redding Planning Manager Lily Toy will existing on the subject of shorter-time period rentals now operating in the town at a council meeting future month. The date of that assembly hasn’t been set however, Toy stated last Friday.

Quick-term trip rentals like these advertised on Airbnb and Vrbo are a provocative matter in Redding. The time period refers to choice household rental housing, located in one-family properties, that the owner leases out for fewer than 30 days.

About 212 quick-expression rentals run lawfully in residential neighborhoods, said Toy, up from 90 in 2015.

Contractors hired by the town to continue to keep tabs on the business have discovered about 300 quick-time period rentals. About 80 to 100 of the overall possibly aren’t accredited by the city or are flat-out neighborhood nuisances that are run by lousy operators. Remaining lawful means small-expression rentals have paid out an once-a-year business enterprise license payment of at the very least $50.

They must also shell out transit occupancy tax — 12% of receipts — to the town on their rental earnings, as inns must. They also have to meet up with other requirements tied to occupancy and parking.
