Short-Term Vacation Rental Safety Inspections

Placer County STRs

Placer County recently passed a Short Term Rental(STR) Ordinance that includes our District performing one inspection on all STRs within 3 years.


There are over 2,800 STRs in our District.


The initial fire inspection will not hold up the STR permit process and the owner can still rent out their STR. If they do not complete the inspection by

March 31, 2023 they will not be

renewed and can't rent out their STR.


We are working with Placer County to finalize some specific details that maybe causing some confusion to staff and STR owners. Once an inspector schedules the inspection they can work to answer or clarify any details. 


We will begin scheduling inspections that have been requested through the sign up link on June 15, 2020. They will be scheduled in the order they were received.
