Niagara Falls city council has approved a new licensing bylaw for vacation rental units and bed and breakfasts.
A new annual fee of $500 will be required for a new vacation rental unit or bed and breakfast licence (or change of ownership), and an annual fee of $250 for the renewal of any existing licence.
“Under the new bylaw, these licences remain the property of the city and are non-transferrable. In addition, any operator who receives three violation notices will have their licence suspended. Anyone caught operating without a licence would be subject to a chargeable offence.”
