Who needs to apply for a Short-Term Rental License?

Any owner renting a property for a period of 30 consecutive days or less is required to apply for a Short-Term Rental License. It is the owner(s)’ responsibility to know and comply with all ordinances, resolutions and regulations that apply to short term rentals within the City of Wheat Ridge. A license is required if you are advertising a short term rental, even if no available dates are listed. Rentals that are only for 30 consecutive days or more do not require a license, but the booking calendar must require a 30-night minimum stay.
