Short-term rentals in Florida may soon face government regulation
Properties on Aibnb or VRBO may be treated like hotels
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Both the Florida House and Senate have proposed bills about short-term rentals. Both were postponed after mass criticism from local leaders and no support from Gov. Ron DeSantis
The proposed bills, HB 1011 and SB1128, would protect people or businesses who advertise rentals through platforms like Aibnb or VRBO.
At a press conference on Monday, residents from Tallahassee, St. Augustine and Crystal River said vacation rentals left unchecked negatively affect the quality of life for neighbors.
