Article Summary: 

The blog post on the Condo Control website discusses the topic of whether an HOA (Homeowners Association) can restrict short-term rentals. It explains that short-term rentals can be beneficial for both homeowners and guests, but they may not always be welcomed by HOAs. Some HOAs have completely banned homeowners from renting out their homes to travelers due to potential problems associated with short-term renters. These problems include unfamiliarity with community rules, increased premises liability risk, and disruptions to neighbors. The post mentions that HOAs have the ability to ban short-term rentals, but the ban must be included in the CC&Rs (Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions). Some states have also passed laws that regulate short-term rentals and may require HOAs to revise their policies. The post suggests strategies for enforcing short-term rental bans and managing them, such as creating policies, monitoring listings, and implementing penalties for rule violations. It concludes by emphasizing the importance of clarity and enforcement in HOAs' approach to short-term rentals
