Santa Fe County STR

Short-term rental (STR) hosts in Santa Fe County, New Mexico, will need to get a license to operate under a new law. While the measure went into effect on November 25, 2022, operators have until March 15, 2023, to register their vacation rentals.

The ordinance divides short-term rentals into two categories:

  • Owner-occupied is defined as a dwelling that is that is the owner’s primary residence or an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) on the same property. Owners must live in a home for at least 275 days in a 12-month period in order for it to qualify as a primary residence. The annual business registration fee for owner-occupied properties is $35, and only one registration is allowed per owner.
  • For Non-owner occupied properties, the registration fee is $375, with a renewal fee of $300.

The new measure also establishes a one-year moratorium on new licenses for non-owner occupied vacation rental properties that are acquired after the law’s effective date of November 25. The county plans to further study issues related to STRs within that time frame.
