Short Term Home Rentals Are Illegal in Residential Areas

Recently the Planning Commission and the City Council explored allowing the short term rental of homes in the residential areas of Lake Oswego.  Based upon these discussions, and the citizen comments received, the City Council decided to continue to permit short term rental stays only in commercial areas.

In residential areas the rental of a home, a guest room, etc. will remain limited to a stay of 30 days or longer. The rental of a guest room or other overnight stay for less than 30 days must occur in a hotel or similar business in a commercial area.

Please direct questions and complaints to Bill Youngblood, Code Enforcement Specialist, at byoungblood@lakeoswego.city or call (503) 699-7473. When forwarding a complaint please provide an address and link to the advertisement for the short term rental.
