Home Share (Airbnb) Ordinance Meeting
On June 22, 2016, the City of Chicago adopted an ordinance that changed the law regarding the regulation of short-term rental activity, including shared housing and vacation rentals, in the city. The ordinance takes effect December 17, 2016.
As part of the ordinance, the City of Chicago's Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection will maintain a Prohibited Buildings List which will allow your building to be placed on a list prohibiting short-term residential rental activity in your building if it has 5 or more dwelling units, or the building is otherwise governed by a homeowners' association, condo association, or building cooperative. The provision of the ordinance allowing buildings to be added to the Prohibited Buildings List went into effect on July 15, 2016. This list allows the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection to ensure those dwelling units on the list will not be rented through home-sharing platforms (i.e. Airbnb, HomeAway, FlipKey, VRBO, among others).
On November 16th, the 3rd Ward Office in conjunction with the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection, will host a meeting for Board Presidents, Managing Agents or Association Attorneys, to learn about the House Share Ordinance and how to take the necessary steps to be included on the Prohibited Buildings List. The meeting will also offer an opportunity to get questions answered, obtain an Affidavit Form and learn how to handle complaints.
All Board Presidents, Managing Agents or Association Representatives of Condominiums & Homeowners Associations, located in the 3rd Ward, are invited to attend this important meeting on:
