Short-term rentals in specific zones
The City of Chino Hills only allows short-term rentals of fewer than 30 days in certain zones, including the Freeway Commercial (C -F), General Commercial (C -G), and Commercial Recreation (C- R) zones. To determine whether your rental is located in one of these zones, please refer to the City’s Zoning Map, consult your attorney, or reach out to the City at email@example.com or via phone at (909) 364-2757.
In most states and localities in the United States, guests who stay in a home or apartment for approximately 30 days—the exact number depends on jurisdiction—may establish rights as a tenant. Generally, this means that local tenancy laws could protect them, and you may not be able to remove them from your property without proceeding through required eviction processes in court. For example, in California, Illinois, and New York, a residential tenancy may be created after 30 consecutive days of occupancy. Someone who stays with you for fewer than 30 days generally does not have the rights of a tenant unless there is a written agreement to the contrary, but every state is different. Local laws may differ from state laws regarding residential tenancies. We encourage you to review your local rules and regulations before accepting a long-term reservation.
