Placer County Short Term Rental (STR) Moratorium Information

Many Tahoe area homeowners offset the cost of their properties by offering them as short term rentals. If you're one of them, or if you have an interest in having an STR in the future, you may be interested in Placer County's recent moratorium.

On July 27, 2021, the Placer County Board of Supervisors approved an Urgency Ordinance enacting a 45-day moratorium on new STR permits. No new permits were issued during the moratorium.
On August 31, 2021, the Placer County Board of Supervisors approved an extension to the Urgency Ordinance moratorium until March 31, 2022.
1) Anyone who had a STR permit in 2020 and didn’t renew for whatever reason can get an STR permit for the 2021 permit cycle
2) Anyone who has a valid STR permit and is selling their property can essentially sell the home with the STR permit. The person who purchases the property may also get a STR permit. This exemption is not tied to the July 27 date – this will run through the entire moratorium period. For example, someone can sell their property in November and as long as they have a valid STR permit, the person buying can get a STR permit on the same property.
3) Anyone who started an STR permit application prior to the July 27 Board action will get their permit issued.
