What if I don't get a permit for my short-term rental?

If you operate an accessory short-term rental without the required permit, you will be found in violation of Portland City Code and subject to enforcement action. Enforcement actions include an initial compliance period to obtain the required accessory short term rental permit and potential assessment of code enforcement fees if violations are not corrected within allowed compliance periods.

A Type A accessory short-term rental permit can be revoked for failure to comply with the regulations of Chapter 33.207. When a Type A accessory short-term rental permit has been revoked, a new Type A accessory short-term rental permit will not be issued to that resident at that site for 2 years, in addition to other enforcement actions for continued non-compliance.
