The Fairfax Board of Supervisors voted on July 31, 2018 to permit short term rentals within the County.
SHORT-TERM RENTALS will be allowed in single-family homes, townhouses, condos, mobile homes and apartments. Per the Fairfax County website, the rules are:
Owners or renters must be permanent residents of the property they offer for short-term lodging. This limitation is to prevent businesses from operating multiple, full-time rentals, like a hotel or motel, in residential neighborhoods.
