    Understanding short term rental rules in New Orleans

    Different license types are Accessory, Temporary, and Commercial depending on the property zoning and your living situation. This is my interpretation of the City of New Orleans Short Term Rental Rules please go to NOLA.gov for more information.

    Accessory Short Term Rental License

    • Basically you are renting out a room in your house
    • The owner must be present when the home is rented out
    • A homestead exemption is in place to prove owner occupancy
    • Can be rented out 365 day no limit

    Temporary Short Term Rental License

    • 90 day rental limit a year
    • Owner of property does not need to be present
    • If owner is not in town you must have an in town property manager

    Commercial Short Term Rental License

    • Owner does not need to be present
    • Can be rented out 365 days a year
    • MUST be in an area that is zoned commercial

    Condos and Short Term Rentals

    • You must check the rules of the condo association to verify that they allow short term rentals, whichever law is the strictest, city or condo association is the one that applies

    Checking the Zoning

    • Website to check zoning is property.nola.gov
    • You can do a search of a property address
    • Under the layers tab check off zoning
    • On the nola.gov site go to "Where are short term rentals allowed?"
