The short-term rental issue is quickly heating up in Tallahassee.
Vero Beach, FL take notice.
A preemption bill has now been filed in the Florida House of Representatives.
Representative Grant filed HB 987 which, among other things, would nullify all local short-term rental ordinances and requirements.
This would impact Vero Beach, FL, which has an ordinance that requires a 30 day rental.
|General Bill by Grant, J.|
|Vacation Rentals: Preempts to state regulation of vacation rentals, with exception; revises application requirements for vacation rental licensure; requires Division of Hotels & Restaurants of DBPR to make certain vacation rental license information available on its website.|
|Effective Date: July 1, 2019|
HB 987 is not a companion bill to Senator Diaz’s SB 824 but they are similar in many aspects and share much of the same language.
[Private Property Rights of Homeowners; Preempting the regulation of vacation rentals to the state; requiring each person applying for a vacation rental license to provide the Division of Hotels and Restaurants of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation with specified information, etc.]
Senator Mayfield has also filed a new short-term rental bill in the Senate, SB 1196.
