Laws in Other Jurisdictions

This study, commissioned by Asheville, North Carolina, provides a useful summary of laws adopted in cities across the United States. Counties have been slower to adopt STTR laws. Arlington County recently passed a law to allow and regulate the use. Learn more about the new Arlington County regulations here. Fairfax County treats STTRs as bed and breakfasts that require special exception approval. Learn more about the Fairfax County law here.
