After becoming a certified host, here's what you need to do to stay certified.
After you get a short-term rental certificate, you must:
Violations of the City’s short-term rental laws are subject to penalties of at least $484 per day for each dwelling unit in violation. These daily penalties begin on the day that a Notice of Violation is issued by the Office of Short-Term Rentals, and continue to accrue until the violation is fully abated. Repeat violations may be subject to escalated penalties and referral to the City’s Attorney’s Office for additional civil and/or criminal penalties.
To maintain good standing as a certified short-term rental host, you must submit a quarterly report to the Office of Short-Term Rentals. The quarters begin on January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1 of each year. At the end of each quarter, you have 30 days to report the number of
nights you have rented your unit (hosted and unhosted) as a short-term rental. This requirement applies no matter which hosting platform/website you use. Registered hosts must still report no stays if no short-term rentals occurred within the quarterly reporting period.

Your certificate will be valid for a period of two years from the date of issuance, provided that you remain in 'good standing' as a host. If you wish to continue to offer your unit for short-term rental at the end of this initial two-year period, you will want to submit your renewal application in advance of your expiration date to avoid a break in your certified status. Please do NOT submit a renewal application more than 30 days in advance of the expiration.
