    Short-Term Rentals Now Regulated in Baton Rouge Under New Provisions

    Short-term rentals such as Airbnbs will now be fully regulated in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, per a recent Metro Council vote, although the removal of one amendment has chagrined some neighborhood representatives. The approved ordinance requires hosts to acquire a permit that would allow them to continue operating the rentals by ensuring that they are following rules, paying taxes, and are generally held accountable for renters. A stipulation to make whole-home rentals where the property owner lives off-site subject to conditional permits was stripped from the ordinance. Conditional permits would give neighbors a say in whether the homeowner could receive a permit. Federation of Greater Baton Rouge Civic Association President Ed Lagucki called the requirement's removal a mistake.
