Short Term Rentals

Short Term Rentals in Sugar Land

Better Neighborhoods Through Zoning
The City's goal through its zoning regulations is to maintain neighborhood integrity. Authorizing Short Term Rentals (STRs) to exist within residential districts disrupts the nature of, and is incompatible with the designated use of that district.

The City has been made aware of specific concerns as it relates to STRs, among these are:

  • Increased traffic associated with the STR
  • Nuisance complaints regarding parties/noise, trash, and parking issues
  • Concerns regarding strangers coming in and out of the neighborhoods on a frequent basis

Zoning Regulations and Potential Fines

Short-term rentals are only allowed in specific zoning districts with the approval of a Conditional Use Permit (CUP). The unapproved use of a property as an STR violates Sugar Land's zoning regulations. 

The information can be found in the Sugar Land Development Code Land Use Matrix in Sec. 2-71.

Violations of city zoning regulations could result in fines of up to $2,000 per day.
