Information regarding Vacation Rental Requirements and Remedies for Vacation Rental Disturbance are below
Vacation Rental Owners, please ensure that you have registered your rental as required with Douglas County. Vacation Rentals are required to post community rules, occupancy limits and vacation rental ordinances within the unit in a conspicuous place so renters are aware of requirements. Note, Vacation Rental Permits must be renewed annually to be valid.
MB Property Owners: If you have a serious noise or parking issue with a vacation rental and if the issue is "after hours", please contact the Douglas County Sherriff's dispatch at 775 782 5126.
You can also contact the Douglas County Vacation Rental Code Enforcement Agency, HDL, DouglasCounty@hdlgov.com . Ryan George is the Supervisor. You can also call them during business hours at: (775) 238-4135
HDL staff is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. – if a complaint is made after hours, HdL will initiate the investigation. Email messages to HDL should include the SUBJECT LINE: VHR Violation, and the email should indicate the address of the vacation rental and the nature of the issue so code enforcement can follow-up. Vacation Rental Permits provide for a 4 strikes enforcement policy which results in temporary loss of rental permit. As such registering issues with code enforcement is imperative to enforcing the vacation rental codes in our community.
