What if I do not obtain a Short-Term Rental License?

Renting or advertising your home for rent on a short-term basis without a license is in violation of the City of Wheat Ridge’s ordinances and subject to enforcement processes as provided for in City Code Article XIV Section 11-500 and 1-600. 

Persons found to be operating a short-term rental without the required license are not eligible to apply for a short-term rental license for one (1) year following the date upon which they are found to be operating.
