Chicago Vacation Rentals Attorney

Top-Notch Legal Counsel for Property Owners

A vacation rental is a residential property that is listed for rent on a short-term basis. The term of the rental could be for one day, several days, or even weeks. Notably, the rental space could be anything from a tent, an RV, a room, a complete unit, or a house. Some rentals are shared whereas others are private.

There are two types of people involved with vacation rentals: hosts and renters. Hosts have residential rental properties that are available for rent. To list their property, they use a third-party company such as AirBNB, VRBO, TripAdvisor, or Expedia. On the other hand, renters need to rent a property on a limited basis. This is usually because they are on vacation, but other circumstances may exist.

Benefits of Vacation Rentals

So why should you become a vacation rental host? Hosting vacation rentals can be a good way to supplement your income, especially if you are an entrepreneur. It may also be for you if you do not wish to create a full-on landlord-tenant relationship.

Are There Requirements to Become a Vacation Rental Host?

In some cities, there are not many requirements. In Chicago, however, you must receive a license to operate a vacation rental. This involves an application process, zoning, fees, insurance, an inspection, and so on.
