Short-term rental regulations
The City of Minneapolis allows short-term rentals to operate with a registration or rental license, which is dependent on the type of short-term rental. In Minneapolis, there are different short-term listing types that each have unique requirements. Listing types are:
- Renting a room
- Renting a homesteaded unit or condo
- Renting non-homesteaded units in a building with less than 20 units
- Renting non-homesteaded units in a building with 20 or more units.
Each of the listing types above have unique requirements for short-term rentals. Get more info on the short-term rental ordinance requirements.
Hosts are required to display their short-term rental permit or registration number on any listing advertisement.
As part of the application process, all hosts must submit local contact person information, a certificate of occupancy, a signed statement affirming compliance with all applicable laws, and associated fees.
