When deciding whether to become an Airbnb Host, it's important to understand the laws in your city. As a platform and marketplace, we do not provide legal advice, but want to provide some useful links that may help you understand the laws and regulations in Lambton Shores. 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 Lambton Shores requires Hosts to register with the municipality in order to operate short-term rentals. Hosts are responsible for applying for the registration certificate.

Once you submit your registration, the city will review your application. If approved, a license number will be issued, which you’ll need to add to your listing to comply with the requirements.
