Denver to begin issuing Short-Term Rental licenses

With Denver City Council’s passage of Bill 16-0262 the city will soon permit a host with a valid license to offer a short-term rental (STR) in their primary residence for fewer than 30 days.

Hosts may begin applying for licenses on July 1 and must be licensed no later than Dec. 31.

Please visit for answers to frequently asked questions, and for more information about STR licensing, including a pre-application checklist.
