Are home inspections required?

No, but licensees must certify under penalty of perjury that their short-term rental has a functioning fire extinguisher, carbon monoxide detector, smoke alarm, and liability insurance to cover bodily and property damage. Inspection could be required if the Department believes the licensed premises are not compliant with fire, building, or zoning requirements.

Sec. 11-504     The city shall maintain the right to conduct an inspection of the property at any time, upon proper notice, to determine compliance with this Article and Section 26-645
