    Chattanooga City Council Passes Short Term Vacation Rental Changes on Final Reading

    The Chattanooga City Council approved on final reading short term rental (STR) changes that officials said "will reform and streamline short term vacation rental rules, simplifying compliance while toughening enforcement." The new rules will limit STRs in residential areas, while allowing them in any commercial district where it is already legal to build a hotel. "The new rules also recognize the difference between absentee landlords and landlords who reside in the dwelling, and the city adopted different approaches for each, given the commercial nature of renting out an entire home as a business, versus renting out a bedroom or basement to help make ends meet," according to a statement from the mayor's office.
