On July 1, 2019, the Department of City Planning opened the home-sharing online registration portal, an important milestone in the City's efforts surrounding short-term rentals and home-sharing in Los Angeles.. The launch of the online registration system begins implementation of the recently adopted Home-Sharing Ordinance, which establishes a regulatory framework to allow hosts to share space in their primary residences while preventing the wholesale conversion of homes into full-time short-term rental properties. 

To participate in Home-Sharing in the City of Los Angeles, all hosts are required to successfully register for Home-Sharing and include the Registration Number (or Pending Registration Number) on all short-term rental listings prior to November 1, 2019. To access the Portal, please visit  

Information on the registration process, including details on eligibility criteria and required documentation, is available on the Department of City Planning’s website at

If you are interested in receiving ongoing updates about the Home-Sharing Program, including information on how to register, please sign up to the mailing list at
