LA's new short-term rental rules are here, hosts must pay $89 minimum fee

The new rules took effect this week, limiting all Los Angeles short-term rentals to a host's primary residence and capping the number of days most properties can be rented out

Property owners who want to rent out space on Airbnb, Vrbo or similar sites have to register their units with the city and pay a fee, which they can do online. The most basic type of home-sharing registration will allow hosts to rent out their properties for a maximum of 120 days per year, and it costs $89.
