Short-Term Rental Regulations in Georgia

Legal Counsel for Short-Term Rental Owners

In recent years, the number of short-term rentals in Georgia has increased significantly. With the advent of online booking platforms such as Airbnb, Vrbo, and HomeAway, property owners are now able to easily list their homes or apartments for short-term rental. While the rise of short-term rentals has provided economic benefits for property owners and increased tourism in the state, it has also raised concerns about housing affordability, neighborhood safety, and regulatory compliance.

In Georgia, short-term rental regulation can be found in new short-term rental ordinances at the city and county levels and even in restrictive covenants for properties belonging to a homeowner’s association.
