Wed, December 27, 2023 9:24 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

For the past several months, Airbnb and the City of Portland have been in ongoing negotiations about the best pathway forward to ensure fair and responsible hosting can continue to take place in the city. As a result, there’s just one very important detail that hosts should be aware of if they want to remain listed on the Airbnb platform.

Registration Number Visibility
Regulations Page in AirbnbIf you haven’t already, you MUST indicate a valid permit number in the listing field. Check to make sure your permit number is displayed. Click on your listing then the tab Policies and Rules and scroll down to Regulations. Click through that tab to ensure your permit number is visible.

Find Your Permit Number
You can find your permit number by going to PortlandMaps.com and entering your home address. All permits pulled for your home will be listed on the front screen. Copy the permit number from here and drop it directly into Airbnb.

Non-Compliant Listings Will Be Removed

If you think your listing falls into a category of exceptions to the rules for renting a short-term rental in Portland or if you cannot locate the place to make that change in your listing, reach out to Airbnb (chat here or call 415-800-5959)
