Vacation Rental Registration Program
On August 18, 2015, the City Commission of the City of Fort Lauderdale created and adopted Ordinance C-15-29 (Article X) – Vacation Rentals, of Chapter 15 – Business Tax Receipts and Miscellaneous Business Regulations, of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Fort Lauderdale, providing for regulation of vacation rentals as defined in Section 509.242, Florida Statutes (2015). Ordinance C-15-29 is effective November 1, 2015.
The ordinance defines vacation rental as any unit or group of units in a condominium or cooperative or any individually or collectively owned single-family, two-family, three-family, or four-family house or dwelling unit that is rented to Transient Occupants more than three (3) times in a calendar year for periods of less than thirty (30) days or one (1) calendar month, whichever is less, or which is advertised or held out to the public as a place regularly rented to Transient Occupants, but that is not a timeshare project.
