What's Happening?

If the ordinance is passed as written it will eliminate 80% of the currently operating STRs in Clark County and enforcement will begin July 1, 2022 even though no licenses will be issued to hosts until next year 2023. 

Applying for a license will not guarantee you will get one as it will be a loterry, but Clark County Commissioners will still require STR owners to provide all their personal information, including the location of their short-term rental(s), in order to apply to be entered into the lottery.  This means that Clark County will get to find out where all STRs are located and be able to go after them to shut them down. Instead of keeping the minimum requirements set by the State, Clark County Commissioners have chosen to increase and add even more burdensome requirements, further proving that their intent is not to provide a path to legalization nor care to protect regular folks who rent short-term as an economic vehicle to provide and support themselves and their loved ones during these difficult economic times.   

For example, Clark County Commissioners have:

  •  incresed distance restriction between STRs from 660-feet set by the State to 1,000-feet,
  • they have placed a 1% cap on licenses which will eliminate 75% to 80% of currently operating STRs,
  • they have reduced  occupancy to two-people per bedroom, 
  • they have lowered the maximum occupancy from 16 people to 10, 
  • they will require detailed and burdensome reports,
  • they will only issue one license per person or entity,
  • they will require signage display on homes identifying them as STRs which could increase property crimes,
  • they will require 30 minute response time from an emergency contact while most jurisdictions require 60 minutes

Plus countless others restrictions and requirements and they can make those restrictions and requirements even more strict or add new ones if we do not show up to defend our right to rent out our properies.  We know the anti-STR groups and individuals, and all of the County officials do not want STRs to be legal.  They are determined to dessimate our ability to rent out our properties on a short-term basis smearing us all as "party houses" and blaming us for the housing crisis. Afraid of Being Caught?

In order to have a chance at being entered into the lottery, you will be required to disclose all your personal information including the location of your rental home(s) with no guarantee you will get a license.  Therefore, hiding and staying quiet in the shadows is no longer an option!!  This is the time for you to come out and fight back for your future and that of your loved ones.  

You are no longer alone.  Thousands of STR owners, operators, hosts, and supporters are behind you!  You need to join your voice and presence along others just like you.

Most importantly, we, the Greater Las Vegas STR Association has your back!  With donations from people like you, we have hired a top law firm that's preparing a legal challenge to these regulations and will fight on behalf of the entire host community here in Las Vegas and throughout Nevada to protect our ability to continue hosting but we need you to get involved!  Keep reading below to learn how you, your friends, loved ones, guests, and local business owners can help.

Show Up and Speak Up!  

Only you can tell your story on how short-term renting benefits you, your family, and your community.  Please bring your friends and family members to speak in person at the County hearing of June 21st, 2022.  Reach out to your past guests and the local small businesses that benefit from your STR and tell them to show up or email demanding public officials to remove the 1% cap, get rid of the lottery, license all current STRs, and protect people's ability to earn a living through hosting.

Make no mistake!  These State and local regulations are designed to eliminate STRs and deprive homeowners' ability to rent their private properties on a short-term basis; all for the benefit and protection of the resort hotels' profits!  This is why you and everyone you know needs to expose them.

Our local and State Democratic politicians must be called out for protecting the corporate profits of the resort hotel industry which the Board of Clark County Commisioners, all of whom are Democrats, have protected for years through their total ban on STRs in Clark County and which the Democrats at the State-level last year protected through State law AB363 sponsored by Democratic Assemblywoman Rochelle Nguyen and Republican Assemblyman Tom Roberts by giving resort hotels a 2,500-foot buffer zone protection around EACH resort hotel which outright banned STRs within that buffer zone without ever notifying homeowners located in those zones.  To this day, not one Democrat or Republican official (most of whom get corporate donations from the resort hotels) has yet to notify those property owners in those "dead zones" that their property rights were stolen and gifted to the resort hotels by the majority-controlled Democratic Nevada State Legislature!  Those property owners are ineligible per State law from getting an STR license even as the new regulations go into effect in July 1, 2022.

Stand Up and Defend Your Property Rights!

In less than three weeks, on July 1, 2022 the new regulations will go into effect.  

The fines are set at no less than $1,000 to as high as $10,000 per incident for the crime of earning a living for yourself and your family through renting your private property on a short-term basis on platforms like Airbnb and VRBO.

A senior citizen on a fixed income or an individual with disabilities unable to work but who rent a bedroom out of their home will face the same fines all in the name of protecting corporte profits because apparently the resort hotels in Las Vegas should be the only ones benefiting from our tourist economy!

Airbnb and VRBO will be required by law to remove listings of short-term rentals unless the rental has a valid STR license.

Donate to Our Host Legal Fund!

Donate to our Host Legal Fund, we are preparing a legal challenge to this proposed STR law before July 1, 2022.

With your help, we will fight back these overly-aggressive regulations and defend our property rights; even if that means going all the way to the Nevada Supreme Court!  

If our elected officials are not interested in protecting the property rights of homeowners in Nevada or the livelihood of Nevadans struggling to make ends meet, the Greater Las Vegas STR Association will!

  • To donate online go to: https://fundly.com/str-legal-fund-1
  • To donate via Zelle:  (702) 981-8608 to Greater Las Vegas STR Association
  • To donate by check or money order:  Write check out to "Greater Las Vegas STR Association" and mail to: PO Box 15130, Las Vegas, NV 89114 

We are asking hosts to donate one-night's stay from each of their rental property and asking supporters to donate whatever they can.  

Together we can fight back and protect STRs like those on Airbnb and VRBO!  We will not let our corporate-bought public officials to sell out our livelihood in return for corporate donations they receive from the resort hotels!

 

Whatever you do, plan on attending the upcoming Clark County Commissioners Public Hearing!
