Denver started licensing short-term rentals last week. So far 11 people have them.

If Denver’s got 2,000 or so listings on sites like AirBnb, as the Denver Post reports, the city is 0.55 percent of the way to ensuring all are licensed.

If Denver’s got 2,000 or so listings on sites like AirBnb, as the Denver Post reports, the city is 0.55 percent of the way to ensuring all of them are licensed. 

Dan Rowland, spokesperson for Denver’s Excise and Licenses Department, says that a few others have started the process, but not received their license yet.

Only 99.45 percent to go before Jan. 1, when the city may start issuing fines.

To be clear, Rowland wasn’t expecting a big crush of people in the first few weeks though.

But for those interested in avoiding a possible $999 fee for advertising without a licence, plus a possible $999 fee for operating without a license, here are the instructions on how to get licensed.
