Atlanta City Council will hold a virtual public hearing on March 1st, 2020. This proposed ordinance, if passed, will regulate short term rentals in Atlanta and would impact all of Druid Hills within Atlanta city limits. Residents that want to rent their properties using Airbnb or other short term rental companies would have to get a permit ($150 application fee plus $300 permit fee), pay 8% tax, and follow the rules and regulations of the ordinance. There isn't currently any legislation governing short-term rentals in Unincorporated DeKalb, but the county may not be far behind in doing so.
Although most renters are respectful and are not a nuisance, some can be. Report an issue with specific renters to the authorities, as you would with any other disturbance.
