Renting a house apartment for vacation in NOLA - legal?

Jump to last reply

1. Anyone know if renting a house apartment short-term for a week or two for vacation purposes is legal in New Orleans like with Home Away or the like. I know it's done all the time, but does not necessarily make it legal. I had just heard that it is not legal but am curious now. Figured some knowledgeable people might chime in.

2. What is the law here?
3. Does the owner have to acquire a permit to do so?
4. Does it make a difference if the house has some long-terms renters and the other apartments are rented to vacationers (or the owners stay in one when in town from another state)?

I listed my questions b/c I find people tend to answer them ALL that way versus writing in paragraph form.

TIA
