The Newport Beach City Council on Tuesday will consider updating policies that govern short-term vacation rentals.
The range of proposed new regulations includes limiting the number of occupants in a rental unit, requiring real estate broker representation if the home is managed by a third party, and closing out permits that haven’t been used in two years.
If approved, the new policies would also require permit applications include the habitable square footage of the home and the number of bedrooms.
In addition, permits must be conspicuously posted in the home and accompanied by the name and phone number of a local contact person, details on onsite parking, street sweeping and trash collection, and an alert that guests will be held responsible for all activities.
