Scottsdale officials have announced licensing for short-term or “vacation” rental properties is now open.
Scottsdale City Council unanimously adopted ordinance No. 4655 in October, requiring rental property owners and operators to obtain a Scottsdale license for each property and comply with several safety, health and neighbor notification requirements.
This information was first reported in the Scottsdale Update municipal newsletter.
Scottsdale officials report owners of existing short-term/vacation rental properties must obtain licenses by Sunday, Jan. 8, 2023. New short-term/vacation rental properties must also comply with ordinance requirements and be licensed before being offered for rent in Scottsdale.
The annual license fee is $250 per property; fees will go 100% to cover costs associated with licensing vacation and short-term rentals.
Scottsdale’s ordinance complies with Arizona Senate Bill 1168 passed by the legislature and signed by the governor in July, and reflects the full authority granted to cities under state law.
