Simplify the Rules & Protect STRs | By: Multiple Speaker(s)

Upcoming Events with: Multiple Speaker(s):


  • Local governments in Ohio and across the country have placed burdensome regulations or even outright bans on the use of short-term rental properties.
  • Some communities have moratoriums on short-term rentals, restrictions limit the duration of short-term rentals and some require advance notice, and a list of guests to the city.
  • The current patchwork of local regulations across the state hinders the ability of property investors to offer additional housing options. The State of Ohio needs a uniform policy regarding the use of short-term rental properties.
  • These types of restrictions present violations of Ohioan's basic property rights—to support themselves and their family, including through short-term rentals.

Proposed solution:


HB 563 would prohibit local governments from placing excessive restrictions or outright bans on short-term rentals, thus ensuring that every private property owner in Ohio retains their right to use their property to support themselves and their family.


Specifically, HB 563 seeks to eliminate the adoption and enforcement of any regulation, restriction, or other resolution or ordinance that does either of the following:

(1) Prohibits short-term rental properties;

(2) Regulates the number, duration, or frequency of rental periods for short-term rental properties.


HB 563 does not prohibit local municipalities to regulate short-term rentals, it only ensures that short-term rentals be subjected to the same regulations as long-term rentals and that those regulations address public safety or nuisance issues.  


Passing HB 563 would retain Ohioan's constitutional right to rent out their property in a lawful manner. 


We need you to make your voices heard! Contact your representative and ask for their support on HB 563.
