Anyone renting their Frisco property, or seeking to rent a property in Frisco, for less than a consecutive thirty-day period, is required to have a Short-Term Rental License and should be aware of the town’s regulations for Short-Term Rentals (STR). These regulations apply regardless of how the properties are marketed – through a management company, online through sites like Vrbo and Airbnb, newspaper, or word of mouth.
Read the full Town of Frisco ordinance regarding short-term rental licenses:
On October 11, 2022, Town Council adopted Ordinance 22-10, limiting the maximum allowable number of STR licenses that may be issued within Town boundaries to 25% of the residential housing stock. The ordinance went into effect on October 17, 2022. There are 3,600 residential housing units in Frisco, therefore a maximum of 900 STR licenses may be issued.
* * Those who submitted a building permit application for new construction or went under contract on a residential unit on or before October 11, 2022, are exempt from the STR cap and may request an STR account (to apply for an STR license) by emailing STRSupport@townoffrisco.com. Please include the property address, schedule number, property owner(s) names, and proof of ownership.
On February 23, 2023, Frisco reached its short-term rental license cap and is now implementing a waitlist for those wishing to apply for a short-term rental license. To be placed on the waitlist:
