“We had an abundance of calls for police services for domestic violence, for drug use, for trash, noise. It became a real issue in the community…and we needed a faster way to identify the short-term rentals and begin enforcement action on them.”
"We didn’t even know 400 short-term rentals existed in Henderson until we saw the map on the Host Compliance software."
"Short-term rentals are different than hotels. With hotels, you have an auditable trail. Host Compliance gives us that auditable trail. We can make sure we are collecting taxes fairly."
“The County can now put together about 30 cases a month, which is five to six times more cases than before. It’s just an operational efficiency, the volume of work Host Compliance has helped solve.”
