What is a Short Term Rental?
Short term rentals are defined as being permitted to be rented for periods of less than 6 months. Anything over a 6 month and 1 day period is classed as a LTR.
Once you have purchased your short term rental property / vacation home within the Orlando short term rental zones, you will need to obtain a business license and a tourism tax license from the county where you property is located. These licenses are absolutely required in order to rent out your property for short term rentals. Not having a license can subject the owner to fines of $250 per day for non-compliance.
Essentially the licenses permit you to operate your vacation home as a small hotel. The licenses are inexpensive to purchase and are only issued to owners of vacation homes that are legally permitted to offer short term rentals within compliant short term rental communities.
