The New Ordinance

The New Ordinance effective MO01OCT18 is described on the County’s website at https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/news2/new-zoning-rules-to-allow-short-term-rentals/

A copy of the changes is provided below.  Among many other things, this new ordinance requires registration and permits while at the same time it eliminates the need for the County to obtain a warrant to search one’s home.  It requires that the homeowner reside with his guests and limits his rental to only 60 days of the year.  It reduces, if not eliminates, the resident’s right to due process and it mandates the surrendering of the names of the residents’ renters, an invasion of privacy that even the Hotel Industry does not do.  Just wait until our elected officials in Richmond learn about the craziness up north!
