A lot is being said and discussed about the various vacation rental laws in different regions in the US and Boulder County is no exception to this. The debate over vacation rental rules has been on for nearly a year now and finally there is some evident law that is being placed for the very purpose in the region.

There are different slabs prepared for short term rentals and different eligibility criteria are set in order to ensure that the renting activities can be controlled by the authorities and avoid further conflicts in the area.
