I am switching property management companies.  How do I update that information in my STR permit?

The responsible agent/property manager on the active permit will need to access the permit via the Host Compliance portal and update the information.  Please note there is a $50 responsible agent change fee.

I recently purchased a home that has an active STR permit.  How do I get the permit switched over to my name?

All STR permits are non-transferrable.  The current permit will be closed when the purchase of the home is finaled and a new permit will need to be submitted by the new owner.
