Arizona law to crack down on short-term rentals like Airbnb and VRBO

Neighbors struggling with short-term rentals will soon have a reprieve. But will that be enough?

Gov. Doug Ducey on Tuesday signed a bill allowing more regulation of short-term rental operators in the state.

Residents across Arizona have raised complaints about the increased noise, garbage and traffic in their neighborhoods after a 2017 law extended protections for short-term rentals.

The new law, House Bill 2672, was sponsored by Representative John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills, and discusses ‘party houses’ or short term rentals that were used for special events.

Kavanagh said short-term rentals used exclusively for weddings and other large events were not what was intended in the original law.
