When deciding whether to become an Airbnb host, it's important for you to understand the laws in your city. As a platform and marketplace we do not provide legal advice, but we want to provide some useful links that may help you better understand laws and regulations in Radium Hot Springs. This list is not exhaustive, but it may give you a good start in understanding your local laws. We’ll periodically update this information as more becomes available.
The Municipality of Radium Hot Springs requires hosts to obtain a business license with the municipality in order to engage in short-term rentals. Hosts are responsible for applying for a license. You can review and fill-in the licensing application here or call 1-250-347-6455 Ext 6 should you have any questions. You can learn more about the bylaw here. Note that if your listing is located in a Strata Complex, you will need to submit written authorisation from your Strata council together with your license application.
Once you submit your registration, the city will review your application. If your application is approved, a license number will be issued, which you’ll need to add to your listing to comply with the requirements.
Short-term rentals are allowed in secondary suites or principal dwelling units. As an accessory use to a residential use, short-term rentals are only permitted in zones R1, R2 and R3 as well as commercial zones. We recommend you check with your municipality whether your listing is impacted by these requirements by contacting 1-250-347-6455 Ext 6 or by using this map.
Other contracts and rules
As a host, you need to understand and abide by other contracts or rules that bind you, including leases, co-op rules, HOA (Home Owners Association) rules, or other rules established by tenant organizations. You should be able to find out more by contacting your housing authority (such as a community council) or landlord. Your lease (or other contract) might also have specific details.
Our commitment to your community
