In 2016, the Denver City Counsel ruled in favor of regulating Vacation Rentals, and now vacation home owners are getting hit with penalties and licensing demands that are making it hard for vacationers to find licensed vacation homes summer of 2017.
"Denver licensing officials for the first time are going after short-term rental hosts on Airbnb, HomeAway and other online services — more than 1,000 of them.
Showing up in mailboxes this week are the first violation notices issued under Denver’s new short-term rental ordinance, said Dan Rowland, a spokesman for the Department of Excise and Licenses. There are 1,057, to be exact, including 352 mailed last Friday and hundreds more that will be mailed this week.
Rowland said the “vast majority” cite what might be considered the lowest-hanging fruit under Denver’s new law: failing to include a license number in the online listing." (Denver Post)
This ruling and the resulting vacation shortage will have an immediate impact on the Denver area as people are currently looking for homes that have not been targeted by these penalties. While vacation home owners are racing to get compliant, and the appropriate licensing, this is leaving vacationers looking for alternatives and other rental opportunities.
One such solution is using housing solutions such as Corporate Housing. Companies like Corporate Housing Solutions in Denver manage scores of houses and rentals of all types and are meticulous about their licensing. They are also registered under the appropriate Real Estate associations assuring a high standard of quality. While companies like Airbnb or HomeAway maintain a large database of homes in vacation areas all over, they do not pay attention to the licensing that is required in certain areas. Going with a management company like Corporate Housing Solution means that not only is the house well maintained, furnished, and centrally located to all of the best Denver attractions and amenities, it also means that you will not run into the inconvenience of property managers failing to stay on top of licensing requirements by the city they reside in. Something that very well could disrupt your relaxing extended vacation in the Denver area.
