Take Action to Protect Hosting in Jersey City
Jersey City’s new ordinance will effectively ban Airbnb. If the ordinance goes into effect:
Renters, who make up 70% of Jersey City residents, will not be allowed to host, even if they have the landlords permissions
Short-term rentals will be illegal in buildings larger than 4 units
Owner occupied properties will have overly complicated licensing requirements with 55+ individual requirements, making it incredibly hard if not impossible to get a short-term rental permit
Hosts who followed the 2015 law passed by Mayor Fulop and the City Council, which legalized Airbnb, will have to shut down their properties
Over 1,100 jobs that support the short-term rental industry will be lost, $4 Million in tax revenue will disappear, and $110+ Million in revenue to local business from Airbnb guests will evaporate.
