Homeowners rights vs local regulations; NC bill would ban ordinances limiting short term rentals
A new bill puts homeowners rights at the center of a debate over short-term rentals, like Airbnb and Vrbo.
Many cities in the state have 30-day minimum stay rules for short term rentals within city limits.
The bill states no city can adopt an ordinance that prohibits a homeowner from listing their property as a short-term rental.
The bill would also have a nuisance clause that would allow people to complain and get a homeowner's permit to operate pulled.
