Dept of Excise & License – STR Informational Bulletin

Adoption of Rules Governing Short-Term Rentals

On Tuesday, January 8, 2019, the Department of Excise and Licenses held a Public Hearing on the proposed Rules Governing Short-Term Rentals. After careful consideration of all the public comments received prior to and during the hearing as part of the rule-making process, the Director has published the adopted Rules Governing Short-Term Rentals on the Denver Business Licensing website. These rules lay out insurance requirements mandated by the short-term rental regulations in the D.R.M.C. and provide protections for the health, safety, and welfare of the neighborhoods in which short-term rentals operate within the City. The adopted rules will go into effect on April 10, 2019.
