The Kansas City, Mo., Council passed two ordinances on May 4 that will add a number of new regulations on short-term rentals (STRs). One of the biggest changes is that new non-resident STRs will not be allowed in neighborhoods zoned as residential. The city council has also established a flat registration fee of $200, which will increase annually based on the Consumer Price Index. Kansas City will require all existing short-term rentals to register under the new regulations once their annual registration expires. Short-term rental operators will also now be required to keep record of complaints received and other transaction information.
