STRs at Waikiki Lanais are going down!
The STR regulation Bill 89 will reportedly be signed into law on Tuesday, June 25. To be legal, a STR must either have a nonconforming use certificate (NUC) or be in a resort district. Waikiki Lanais is in the Apartment District and not one single owner has a NUC.
Beginning August 1st, 2019, the fine for advertising an illegal STR will be $1,000 to $10,000 per day. All of the easy to find illegal rentals at Waikiki Lanais have already been reported to the Department of Planning and Permitting. However, more reports are welcome.
The DPP has published a FAQ about the new law.
To report an illegal STR, email email@example.com or call the complaint line at 808-768-8127. We are finally winning against the lawless owners in our building.
