Legalities condo owners in Miami-Dade County must follow to legally issue a short-term lease include:

  • Hosts are responsible for guests knowing all applicable rules of the building

  • Owners must acquire a certificate of use for a property as a rental 
  • Hosts must maintain a registry with the names of all renters, including the guests of those who rent the property
