Short-Term Rental

In response to the growing popularity of the short-term rental of private, single family residences, the County of Henrico has adopted regulations to legalize and help ensure the safe operation of this type of lodging. 

Beginning July 1st, 2020, registered homeowners will be allowed to rent space in their homes to guests for stays of less than thirty days.  The process first involves zoning approval followed by an online registration.


The annual registry fee is $200. There is $300.00 application fee if a Conditional Use Permit is required. After July 1, short-term rentals will also be required to pay transient occupancy tax of 8%.

How to Receive this Service

The first step is to complete the Short Term Rental Application listed above.  This may be emailed directly to the Permit Center staff at or dropped off at either of our convenient locations.  Once zoning approval has been granted, a permit number will be provided so that the online registration process may be completed.
