San Bernardino County Makes Changes to Hotline for Short-Term Rental Complaints
San Bernardino County announced Wednesday it is replacing a telephone hotline for short-term rental complaints with a version that will help it crack down on illegal rentals.
The complaints from the hotline are now linked to a system that tracks rentals without permits in unincorporated areas. The only properties currently eligible for short-term rental permits are single-family homes.
The change comes as the industry is showing signs of recovery after a pandemic slump. Bookings are at their highest level nationally since 2019, according the data analytics company AirDNA that specializes in the market.
The San Bernardino County hotline is 1-800-205-9417.
