    Hosting would be easy, if it wasn't for all those rules and regulations!

    Do you have a burning question about what's legal and what's not in your short-term rental business? Or maybe you are thinking about switching from short-term renting to longer term. What are the regulations for that? And what else do you need to know to be in compliance?

    Join us as Michael Jonas, Attorney and Owner of Rational Unicorn Legal Services LLC shares his expertise. Michael will discuss the legal and regulatory issues all hosts and landlords need to be aware of. 

    Rational Unicorn Legal Services practices community business law for everyone in the community; providing highly-skilled legal advice that's down-to-earth and approachable.

    Michael will provide answers to the following:   

    • What should hosts know about landlord/tenant law in general?  
    • What legal and regulatory issues (city, county, or state) should hosts know about? Are you operating legally?
    • What are short-term and long-term rental agreements? And when do you need one? 
    • You'll have a chance to ask your questions too!


      Please honor our venue with a purchase. Order at the bar and they will deliver to our meeting room.

      • 6:30pm: purchase food & drink, networking
      • 7:00pm: program begins
