Who Needs a Short Term Rental License?

Anyone renting their Frisco property, or seeking to rent a property in Frisco, for less than a consecutive thirty-day period should be aware of the town’s requirements for short-term rentals. These requirements apply regardless of how the properties are marketed – through a management company, online such as VRBO and Airbnb, newspaper or word of mouth.

The application process requires the following documents:

  • Self-Compliance Affidavit (Life Safety/Renter’s Information Notice) – this form must be notarized
  • Responsible Agent Agreement – this form must be completed even if applicant is named as Responsible Agent
  • Parking Plan – either a survey or photograph documenting location and number of parking spaces available to guests
  • Lawful Presence Affidavit – only required for individuals applying as sole proprietors (file taxes with their social security number), not LLC or S-Corp
  • Proof of Premise – signed agreement between property owner and licensee application. For example – Property manager applying on behalf of a property owner

  • STR license application fees are $125.00.
    • If you hold a current 2019 Town of Frisco Business/Sales Tax license, the STR license application fee will be $50.00.
