Vacation and Short-Term Rentals

Short-Term Rental Requirements


Starting in January 2023, owners of vacation and short-term rentals in Glendale are required to provide the City of Glendale the name and contact information of a person designated as an emergency contact, as well as contact information for the owner(s) responsible for responding to complaints in accordance with Glendale City Code Section 29.1-41.

The City of Glendale has partnered with GovOS to facilitate the new short-term rentals registration process. The new registration will go live in January 2023. At this time, there is no charge for this registration. 

If you are operating a short-term rental, GovOS will mail you a registration letter on behalf of the City of Glendale on how to register your short-term rental. The registration letter will include procedures for creating your account and your activation code with the account number you will use to access your property record.

If you have not received a letter by the end of January 2023, please contact Glendale Customer Service at 623.930.3190 or [email protected] or email GovOS at [email protected] to request an activation code and account number. Also, please check your spam folder and add [email protected] to your safe sender list.

When applying for your TPT license, use the Region Code GE (Glendale) on your license.
