    Most Scottsdale Vacation Rentals Are Still Unlicensed, Despite Jan. 8 Deadline

    Thousands of short-term rental (STR) properties in Scottsdale, Ariz., are still in noncompliance with an ordinance adopted in October that requires properties that can be rented for fewer than 30 days to be licensed by the city. The deadline for existing rentals to get a license was Jan. 8. As of Jan. 3, a license has been sought for fewer than 900 of the city’s estimated 5,000 listings. Beginning Jan. 9, unlicensed STRs will be subject to enforcement under the ordinance, including a minimum fine of $1,000. The city ordinance followed a state law that took effect in September. It allows cities to license short-term rentals and crack down on nuisance properties. Under state law, cities can fine unlicensed properties $1,000 every 30 days.
