The City of Hyattsville administers the inspections and licensing of short-termal rental properties within City limits. This includes rooms, basements, or whole properties rented through platforms like Airbnb or VRBO.
All homeowners that rent their property are required to secure a City of Hyattsville Single-Family Residential Rental License annually. Note: homeowners that secure a short-term rental license from the City are not required to obtain a short-term rental license from County.
Short-term rental properties that fall outside of City limits and in a Prince George's County unincorporated area inspected and licensed by the Prince George's County Department of Permitting, Inspections, and Enforcement (DPIE). You can find their application here.
If you suspect a property is being rented as a short-term rental without a license, we encourage you to contact the City at (301) 985-5012.
