The Cambridge City Council adopted a Short-Term Rental (STR) Ordinance (#1397) which went in effect on April 1, 2018 and regulates the rental of property for transient housing (stays up to 30 days). Cambridge residents who meet eligibility requirements and wish to use their residential property for short-term rental must register with the city’s Inspectional Services Department by April 1, 2018. 

Inspectional Services will host an informational session for multi-family property owners (more than 4 units, and not condominium associations) to explain pertinent facts about the new Ordinance, eligibility requirements, and the process of obtaining a Certificate of Registration.
