Ordinance No. 927: The purpose of this Ordinance is to establish regulations for the use of privately owned residential dwellings as short-term rentals to minimize the negative effects on surrounding properties. As a result, the County of Riverside has passed Ordinance No. 927, which requires homeowners providing short-term rental services to register their home with the County of Riverside. If you are a homeowner who provides short-term lodging at your residence or if you are a management company providing the same service on behalf of the owner, follow the instructions below:
What is a Short-Term Rental?
Short-term rental definitions vary from state to state. For California, a short-term rental is defined as a residential stay for 30 days or less. Any other time frame greater than 30 days, is considered a lease or normal rental. Please see the Riverside County Ordinance 927 for specific rules and regulations.
