The Miami-Dade County Commission approved a slate of new regulations for short-term rentals on Tuesday.

Under the ordinance, vacation rentals in unincorporated Miami-Dade will have occupancy limits capped at 180 days per year.

Hosts will be required to sign up for a certificate of use, register for a business tax receipt, screen for sexual offenders and enforce some rental standards on guests, such as following standard garbage procedures and noise restrictions, according to the Miami Herald.

The ordinance would apply to 940 active Airbnb hosts, 60 percent of which share an extra room in their homes, Airbnb said, as well as hosts on platforms like HomeAway and VRBO, according to the Herald. It will go into effect in 90 days.

The county vote is a result of months of efforts with the county to bring Airbnb under some of the same regulations as its competitors in the hotel industry.

In April, Miami-Dade commissioners approved tacking on three bed taxes totaling 6 percent to all short-term rentals, excluding Miami Beach. In May, Airbnb collected and remitted $522,000 in tax revenues in Miami-Dade County on behalf of its 6,800 hosts. [Miami Herald]Amanda Rabines
