Peoria adds new rules for vacation and short-term rental properties

PHOENIX — Peoria announced Tuesday that it will be the latest city to pass new rules for vacation and short-term rental properties.

The new rules require homeowners to apply for a free permit from Peoria and comply with neighbor notification and health and safety requirements, the city said in a news release.

It is expected to come into force on January 1.

“Having important safeguards in place allows short-term rentals to thrive while keeping our homes quiet and our neighborhoods safe,” Mayor Cathy Carlat said in the statement.

Landlords should notify surrounding neighbors that the property is a short-term rental, including providing emergency contact details if needed.

If not already permitted, STR owners will be required to conduct sex offender background checks on all guests and carry liability insurance of at least $500,000, according to the press release.

The new rules will also require landlords to display their municipal registration number on all advertisements.

An STR license can be suspended for 12 months if there are three violations of the order within a 12 month period.

Permit can be requested online and there are no fees to apply.
