Florida Bill Could Stop Cities From Regulating Airbnb-Style Rentals

The battle for short-term vacation rentals in single-family neighborhoods has resumed in Tallahassee, with many Brevard owners having a vested interest in the outcome of what has become an annual skirmish.

On the one hand, vacation rental companies are seeking to stop Florida cities and counties from imposing local regulations on them. On the other hand, landlords who see short-term home rentals as a loud and disruptive nuisance want the business to be controlled.

Leading lawmakers support the industry’s arguments that these rentals are a vital engine for Florida’s tourism economy and should also be protected due to property rights issues.
