MI House of Reps Passes Bill to Prohibit Local Govt. From Banning Short-Term Residential Rentals

The Michigan House of Representatives recently passed House Bill No. 4722 that, if it becomes law, would prohibit local units of government from banning short-term rentals of residential property and restricting their power to limit the number of short-term rentals. For instance, a municipality could not limit the number of short-term rentals to less than 30% of the total number of existing residential units within its territory, with some exceptions.

The bill now moves to the Senate for further consideration. We will continue to monitor the progress of this legislation and update you on further developments.
If you have questions about how this bill could affect your property, your neighborhood or your municipality if it becomes law, please contact Gaëtan Gerville-Réache or Brian Lang.
