Short-Term Rental Update, Plus More Information on Operating a Business from Home

By Leah K. Burton

Amid a recession with rising unemployment rates and an ongoing pandemic, homeowners are spending more time at home. Some have been forced to work from home due to COVID-19, while others are looking for ways to make extra money. One method some homeowners are employing to earn additional income is a short-term rental of their entire home or even just a spare bedroom. Others are attempting to start their own business, or continuing to run their existing business out of their home. But what happens for those home/business owners who live in a property owners association (POA)? Are they able to host a short-term rental, or operate a business out of their home?



Short-Term Rentals and Operating a Business from Home

COVID-19 has forced many people across our state to modify the way they live and work. Many people are having to work from home, some may be even operating their business out of their home, and others have lost their job and are looking for alternative ways to make an income. As a result, short-term rentals are becoming more prevalent in our communities. 

Join Shareholder Leah K. Burton and Associate Paul Gaines of our San Antonio Office as they explain what action, if any, POAs can take against short-term rentals and new case law surrounding short-term rentals. Leah and Paul will also discuss how POAs can address owners operating a business from their home.
