For anyone in Broadview Heights looking to make a few extra dollars this year renting out your home, it's time to rethink your plans.

The city has installed a moratorium on short-term home rentals, including bed and breakfasts and Airbnbs. Set to last through 2018, the temporary ban sill supposedly allow officials time to establish regulations for home rentals lasting 30 days or less.

It should be noted that Broadview Heights already has regulations in place for short-term rentals, they're just largely ignored. Michael Skvasik, a Broadview Heights Building Official, told Cleveland.com he thinks education could put an end to short-term rental lawlessness.

"People might not be aware of the rules. We want to make sure they at least comply with existing legislation," he said.

New legislation would include stipulations on how many people can stay in a house and how long, as well as how many cars are allowed.

The Broadview Heights moratorium is just one in a series of Cleveland area communities stalling short-term rentals. Lyndhurst previously introduced a similar ban in 2016 that was eventually lifted.
