New Orleans Short-Term Rentals Limited to One per Square Block, but Council Also Passes Exceptions

After months of debate, New Orleans City Council passed a pair of new short-term rental (STR) laws, limiting STRs to one-per-square-block in residential areas and imposing stricter penalties on STR owners who violate the city’s rules. But council members added a last-minute “release valve” measure to allow residents to apply for exceptions to the square-block cap. The rules go into effect July 1, after the city creates a lottery system to decide which property owners will get to keep their permits when the square-block rule is enforced.
