Vacation Rentals

Earlier this year, the City Commission adopted rules to protect the character of established neighborhoods.  These regulations deal specifically with short-term vacation rentals, and encourage them to be safe and well-maintained. In the City of Hallandale beach, a vacation rental is defined as a property that is rented to guests more than three times in a calendar year for time periods less than one calendar month or is advertised or held out to the public as a place regularly rented to guests. View Ordinance here.


The registration application fee is $200, the annual registration renewal fee is $150.
