Short Term Rental Registration

If you are interested in renting your home to overnight guests on a daily or weekly basis for periods less than 30 days, you will need to register your home as a short term rental.

Registration Process

Step 1:   Review the short term rental standards and determine whether or not you will need to obtain a Conditional Use Permit. A conditional use permit is required for any dwelling used as a non-hosted short term rental for more than 45 days per calendar year. A non-hosted rental is one in which the permanent resident is not present during the visitor’s stay.

Step 2: If you are able to comply with the short term rental standards, complete the Short Term Rental Registration Form (and conditional use permit, if required). Submit the completed application to the City of Monmouth at 151 Main St W, Monmouth, OR 97361.

Please allow at least 30 days for processing the short term rental registration application.  Short term rentals that require a conditional use permit may take up to 120 days to process.

Step 3: Upon receiving registration approval, submit your Lodging - Room Tax Form on a quarterly basis to the City Finance Department located at City Hall, 151 Main St W.

Registration of a short term rental is valid only as long as the owner who registers the dwelling remains the owner. In the event of the sale or transfer of the dwelling to another person, the registration is deemed expired, and the purchaser of the dwelling must file a new registration to continue to operate the dwelling as a short term rental.

For more information on short term rental regulations, please see Monmouth City Code Chapter 5.65.
