Each property generating short term rental income (individual bookings of less than six months) must have a Florida Hotel License which is renewed annually.
The application and renewal of this license is usually handled by your management company – we recommend that you request and retain a copy in your personal files.
The Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation issues Hotel Licenses.
If you do not have a management company and require assistance in applying for or renewing your license please contact our office.
You can obtain information on licensing requirements, check the status of an existing application, apply using a printable application, or access the online application system from the Department of Business & Professional Regulation.
