Short-term rentals banned in Cerritos

August 25, 2017

Residents are reminded that the City of Cerritos prohibits short-term rentals. 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.
