Buffalo is putting some new laws and regulations on renting out your house or apartment on Air BnB, the popular vacation rental app.

Buffalo has adopted laws and regulations that have codes that renters must follow. They require that an inspector comes into your home beforehand, and you have to pay for the inspection. According to Spectrum:

The ordinance states that if hosts open an Airbnb in Buffalo or Amherst, the property must be registered with the city. There’s an initial registration fee of $250, and an annual fee of $75, for owner-occupied homes; houses used for short-term rentals exclusively will be charged $500 initially.

Keep in mind every township has different regulations and you should check before you post your rental online.
