Regulation Authority:

R.I. Gen. Laws § 42-63.1-14

Purpose and Reason:

Pursuant to the enactment of R.I. Gen. Laws § 42-63.1-14, the Department is required to create an online registration database for short-term rental properties. In order complete the implementation process, DBR is proposing this regulation which establishes a registration process for short-term rentals:
Registration is by property, not property owner. Any person or entity that operates multiple properties needs to submit a registration for each separate property. 
Registrations must be submitted electronically. 
Registrations shall be terminated by the registrant when no longer subject to the registration requirement. 
Registration and Renewal fee will be $50 for a two-year registration. 
Registrations cannot be transferred to a new registrant.
