INGLEWOOD, Calif. – The Inglewood Planning Department is following state law in banning accessory dwelling units (ADU) from being used as short-term rentals under Assembly Bill No. 2299.
State law explicitly denies property owners the ability to add an ADU with the expectation of turning it into a short-term rental.
During the recent city election, the issue became a topic of discussion as the City began processing applications to obtain a short-term rental permit.
Those who already listed their units on short-term rental platforms like Airbnb, VRBO, and HomeAway, are also being asked to remit Transient Occupancy Taxes (TOT) in the amount of 15.5% of the advertised listed daily rate. Taxes are not assessed on fees (administrative, cleaning, etc.).
If you have built an ADU on your property it is understood at the time of being granted approval that the unit is not to be used for any other purpose than providing a long-term living space for either a family member or on the open rental market.ADU-Development-Standards
