Short-term rentals prohibited in Cerritos

December 30, 2016

This year the City Council approved an ordinance prohibiting short-term rentals in Cerritos. The ordinance took effect on August 13, 2016.

Short-term rentals refer to leasing or renting a residential dwelling unit (in whole or in part) for 31 days or fewer. The most common types of short-term rentals are vacation rentals and home-sharing rentals, which are now both prohibited. City-approved and permitted hotels located in commercially zoned areas are not considered short-term rentals under the ordinance.

The ban strives to protect residential neighborhoods from the noise, nuisances, added traffic and other adverse factors that can arise with short-term rentals. Appropriate measures will be taken against those who violate the City ordinance.
