The “Philly Airbnb/Vrbo licensing law”, which passed in June 2021, requires Airbnb/Vrbo operators to obtain either “Limited Lodging Operator License” or “Rental License that identifies use as a hotel” from the Department of Licenses & Inspections (L&I), & this license is treated as a “rental license” and requires a lead certification to be submitted to the Public Health Department which started Jan 3, 2023, Hosts will not be able to obtain or renew their licenses without a lead certification (the same as a traditional landlord).
A certification that a property is lead safe means that a certified lead dust sampling technician/licensed lead inspector/risk assessor has: 1) determined the property is free of deteriorated, flaking, chipping, peeling, chalking or not-intact paint, and 2) interior dust samples were collected, tested, and found not to contain hazardous levels of lead-contaminated dust.
Yes, L&I is now requiring that you have already obtained a certification prior to you renewing your rental license. Additionally, if your license is due to be renewed, you will not be able to renew it without having submitted your Lead Safe Certificate and laboratory results to the Public Health Department for their review and approval.
In addition, you are required certify on the annual rental license application that you have complied with the law’s requirement and have obtained a lead certificate. If you misrepresent this information, your rental license may be terminated, and you can face significant fines.
