STR Application Process

Short-Term Rental (STR) property owners must complete an application and verify they have met all requirements pursuant to Ordinance No. 22-15.  An STR permit must be obtained prior to operating.

The application, proof of ownership, proof of residency, and acceptable forms of payment for the permit fee must be submitted to the Inglewood Finance Department located on the first floor of Inglewood City Hall, One West Manchester Boulevard (A complete checklist of the required docs can be found below).  Once the application has been approved, an STR Permit will be mailed to the Host.

If submitting a passport in lieu of the identification card/driver’s license, two copies from the aforementioned list will be required.
