If you are currently operating a Short-Term Rental in the City of Anaheim, you are required to submit a completed application along with the $250 Registration Fee. Short-Term Rental Permits are non-transferable, and any change in ownership or address of the rental property would require a new application be filled out and submitted within 14 days of such a change, along with the $250 Registration Fee.
In order to obtain a Short-Term Rental Permit, you must:
Contact the Business License Division at (714)765-5194 to obtain and complete the Short-Term Rental Permit Application.
If approved, a REG Permit ID# will be issued for your property. If you operate multiple short-term rentals, you must apply separately for each address. Your unique REG Permit ID# must be included in all advertisements for your short-term rental property. Each Short-Term Rental Permit must be renewed annually by resubmitting an application form and resubmitting the Registration Fee, which will be used by the Community Preservation & Licensing Division to administer the Short-Term Rental Program.
The program will be administered by the Community Preservation & Licensing Division, which has the power to:
Investigate complaints and issue notices of violation
Issue Civil Citations according to the approved penalty schedule
Conduct Compliance inspections as a result of repeated complaints or violations made on a property, or when deemed necessary by the Planning Director
The application can be filled-out online, but can only be:
Submitted in person at Anaheim City Hall 200 S. Anaheim Blvd #136 First Floor, Anaheim California, 92805, or
Mailed to P.O. Box 6104, Anaheim California, 92803.
If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact the City of Anaheim’s Business License staff at 714-765-5194.
