HOME SHARING IS NOT ALLOWED IN RSO UNITS
Home Sharing Ordinance
In December 2018, the City Council adopted the Home-Sharing Ordinance (CF 14-1635-S2), creating regulations to restrict short-term rentals to one’s primary residence, in order to prevent the wholesale conversion of homes into rental properties. The Home-Sharing Ordinance requires hosts who wish to engage in short-term rentals to register with the City Planning Department and post their registration number on all advertisements. Hosts must adhere to all requirements and must use the online portal to register.
Home-sharing cannot be offered in any rental housing in the following circumstances:
To find out whether a property is subject to the RSO, search for the address in ZIMAS (zimas.lacity.org) and check under the “Housing” tab, or Text “RSO” to 1(855) 880-7368.
