The Dallas City Council approved new rules on June 14 that restrict where short-term rentals (STRs) can operate and make it mandatory that properties be licensed to allow guests to stay. The council approved recommendations endorsed by the City Plan Commission in December to change zoning rules to ban rentals listed on platforms from operating in single-family neighborhoods, allow only one rental in a single unit, and require off-street parking. The proposal would still allow STRs in multi-family zones. The council also voted to change city code to make it mandatory for properties to annually register with the city, pay related fees and taxes, adhere to occupancy and noise limits, have someone on file who can respond to the property within one hour to address any emergency concerns, and other new rules.
