Municipalities that implement bans on short term rentals

There is much controversy regarding the complexity of Miami vacation rental restrictions in Florida; they are neither equal nor consistent. The laws regarding weekly rentals in Miami and sixty-seven other counties throughout Florida confirm these inconsistencies. Most cities have developed their own separate guidelines regarding the regulation or ban of short term rentals of condos and single family homes.

The following are a few examples of the vacation rental restrictions in various cities throughout Florida:

City of Wilton Manors-Ft. Lauderdale, Broward; in an effort to restrict the rentals of single-family homes City Officials tried to use code enforcement to limit the amount of short term rentals allowed in single-family homes. Because the City failed to prove its case, the ruling was in favor of the property owners.

Village of Islamorada, Monroe County; adopted a new law that actually limits the number of vacation rental licenses the city can issue to 331. The new ordinance also ended the weekly rental of some properties.
