Some Knoxville Airbnb hosts receive warning from city

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Some Airbnb hosts got a warning from the City of Knoxville that they could be guilty of a crime. A viewer reached out to WATE 6 On Your Side and said she got a letter saying if she doesn’t shut down her rental in 120 days, she could be guilty of a misdemeanor.

City Council has been working to pass an ordinance to make short-term rentals like Airbnb legal. Right now, they aren’t in Knoxville because deciding on an ordinance keeps getting postponed.

Natalie Nordstrom found an opportunity a few years ago. She listed a Knoxville duplex on Airbnb. However, she may have to shut it down soon after getting a letter from the city.

“It’s a significant amount of our income and it’s something that we have worked very hard for,” she said.

She received a letter in the mail from the city on Friday. It said her short-term rental violates a zoning code because it’s a business in a residential area.

“I just cried. It was my first business that I started, so to me it was very personal,” said Nordstrom.

Lynne Randazzo is another host. She also got a warning.

“Suprised when I got the letter. We have been operating for two and a half years and we have never had a complaint,” said Randazzo.

Peter Ahrens, the director of Plans Review and Inspections for the City of Knoxville, said they have sent out 11 of these letters so far. He said they only send them out if someone calls to complain about a short-term rental.

“We are receiving more complaints through 311, not necessarily that they are being rowdy or obnoxious but because they are located in residential districts,” he said. “Focusing on these in a reactive manner. We are not proactively seeking out.”

Ahrens said City Council hopes to make a decision on the ordinance by November, which is before the 120 days are up for hosts.

“I just encourage them to get involved in the process and speak to their council members,” he said.

Right now, this proposed ordinance says a person can only list a short-term rental if it is their primary residence. It does not allow someone to buy a property and then list it on Airbnb. Ahrens said council is waiting for the Metropolitan Planning Commission to take a look at it first.

The city believes there are about 300 Airbnbs in the area.

The Best Airbnb Rentals in Knoxville

Knoxville

Knoxville, Tennessee is a great weekend destination for its proximity to hiking trails and incredible restaurants. There are hotels in most areas, some catering to business and conference crowds while others appeal to leisure travelers.

Airbnb and other rental services have gained popularity, especially for weekend trips. But they’re also a way to stay socially distanced as you don’t need to enter a lobby or pass other guests in the elevator. Instead, you can rent out an entire house and clean it yourself. 

Knoxville has plenty of Airbnb properties to choose from and we’re featuring a few of our favorites.

If it’s your first time staying with Airbnb, you can use this link to receive a $40 discount.

This post contains affiliate links but won’t cost you anything extra.

How to Choose a Neighborhood

Old City

If you’re staying at an Airbnb in Knoxville, first you should decide which part of town you want to be in. You’ll find more inventory in some neighborhoods over others.

The Old City, South Knoxville, and Market Square are the closest to the action but don’t limit yourself. Broaden your search to Powell and Maryville.

Decide which attractions you want to see and what activities you want to do and choose a part of town that is convenient. You don’t want to spend your entire trip on the highway!

Best Practices for Airbnb Rentals in Knoxville

Tennessee River

Before you book your Airbnb in Knoxville, confirm a few details with your host. First, find out what the parking situation is. If it’s free parking on the street, find out if that’s on the street the property is on or nearby. Ask about street cleaning and ticketing.

Inquire if self-check-in is possible to avoid arranging a time to pick up a key. And, most importantly, make sure the rental and its surrounding area are safe.

Airbnb draws scrutiny, regulations as guest stays surge in Tennessee

Knoxville resident Mike Cohen rents out his West Knoxville residence via Airbnb. Cohen has opened his home to guests through the service for the past three years.

Even as Tennessee’s hotel industry continues to grow, short-term rentals such as Airbnb are growing, too — perhaps proportionately faster than hotels, considering their late start.

That hasn’t resulted in full-scale pushback from traditional lodging, but the growing presence of short-term rentals in urban neighborhoods has led to some local regulation and talk of more.

There are several short-term room rental online services, such as VRBO and HomeAway, but Airbnb is the largest. Airbnb announced nearly all of the cities it serves in East Tennessee saw their use double in 2017, hosting 154,000 visitors in the “Greater Knoxville” area, which Airbnb describes as Knox, Sevier, Blount, Cocke, Jefferson, Monroe and Cumberland counties.

Those rentals brought $17.4 million to area property owners, according to Airbnb. In Knoxville, 400 hosts welcomed 36,000 visitors, who paid $3.2 million for their stays.

Sevier County big for Airbnb

But far and away the biggest draw was Sevier County. Cities there have a total of 790 Airbnb hosts, who saw 106,000 guests and made $12.9 million, according to the company. Knoxville, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville are all among the top 10 home-sharing markets in Tennessee, Airbnb reported.

“A lot of those mountain towns truly represent a dream vacation for some families,” said Ben Breit, Airbnb’s Tennessee spokesman, via email. “And you have a lot of cabins on our platform that have served as traditional vacation rentals for many years, and now they're just using Airbnb as another forum to reach customers.”

Longtime cabin renters appreciate the background checks Airbnb does on its clients, he said.

Sevier County gets more visitors than Knoxville, and probably has more “condos, cabins, and chalets” available, too, said Leon Downey, executive director of the Pigeon Forge Department of Tourism.

Brad Ivens, president of Smoky Mountain Vacation Lodging Association, heads a property management company for individual cabin and chalet owners. They look at Airbnb and similar services as “online travel agents” like Expedia.com, with which traditional cabin rental agencies are already familiar, he said.

“For us, it’s not a new animal,” Ivens said. Short-term rental services have definitely had an impact, but vacation lodging services can themselves list properties on Airbnb, he said.

Traditional property managers and rental agents follow myriad local and state regulations on taxation, safety and licensing, and they want to see Airbnb do the same, Ivens said.

Right now that burden — of tax collection, at least — is usually on the individual property owners.

Knoxville resident Mike Cohen rents out his West Knoxville residence via Airbnb. In Knoxville last year, 400 Airbnb hosts welcomed 36,000 visitors, who paid $3.2 million for their stays.

“Operators of short-term rentals are required to obtain a Sevier County business license and collect and remit lodging, sales and gross receipts taxes,” Sevier County spokesman Perrin Anderson said. “Short-term rentals are fundamentally no different than regular lodging properties, so it is fair that those who make a profit from online or advertised short-term rentals by owner should pay all applicable local and state taxes.”

Taxing taxation

Mike Cohen, owner of Knoxville’s Cohen Communications, also rents out part of his home on Pemmbrooke Shire Lane. He’s done so for three years, exclusively through Airbnb. In that time he has seen a steady stream of visitors from all over the country, plus England, Bulgaria, Syria, Canada and France.

“Many choose Airbnb because they want the space, because they have a pet (I am pet-friendly), they want a kitchen, they want more privacy,” Cohen said in an email.

Like hosts in Sevier County and elsewhere in Tennessee, he manages local compliance himself, including applicable taxes.

Knoxville resident Mike Cohen rents out his West Knoxville residence via Airbnb. Cohen has opened his home to guests through the service for the past three years.

“We all want Airbnb to handle this for us,” Cohen said. The company has indicated that it will, he said. Nothing has materialized yet, but Cohen is confident the tax issue will be resolved.

He is happy to see recent legislation on the subject, and has always thought Airbnb users should be paying the local occupancy tax. Most of that revenue goes to Visit Knoxville, which promotes events such as the Big Ears and Rhythm & Blooms music festivals, and those in turn draw guests to Cohen’s rooms, he said.

Knoxville is working with Airbnb to set up a voluntary tax collection agreement, said Jesse Mayshark, the city’s director of communications.

“We hope to get that in place soon, although until it is in place it will be up to the individual hosts to do the collection,” he said. “But we know it will be a lot easier for everybody to have that agreement, so we want to get it done as soon as possible.”

Airbnb already has such a tax-collection-and-submission agreement with Memphis, and hopes to strike similar ones with Knoxville and other Tennessee cities, Breit said.

Founded in 2008

Founded in 2008, Airbnb lists rentals in more than 65,000 cities worldwide, according to the company. Nashville is tops in Tennessee, but 2017 numbers for that market aren’t yet available, Breit said.

Memphis saw 68,000 Airbnb guests, who paid $7 million in 2017, while Chattanooga got 53,000 visitors, earning hosts $5.2 million, according to the company. Suburbs of major cities saw big numbers, too, such as 6,000 visitors to Murfreesboro and 4,400 to Lookout Mountain.

Local governments began regulating Airbnb when they realized they didn’t have a good way to track the location of short-term rentals, and police often didn’t know if they were private homes or commercial property, said Greg Adkins, president and CEO of the Tennessee Hospitality & Tourism Association.

The traditional lodging industry maintains that short-term rentals perform the same commercial transactions as hotels or bed-and-breakfasts, which pay several levels of taxes, obey zoning laws, must have insurance, and meet multiple safety and accessibility regulations, he said.

Knoxville resident Mike Cohen rents out his West Knoxville residence via Airbnb. Cohen has opened his home to guests through the service for the past three years. In that time he has seen a steady stream of visitors from all over the country, plus England, Bulgaria, Syria, Canada and France.

“We as an industry think that like-minded businesses should be put on the same level playing field,” Adkins said. Airbnb itself can certainly afford to meet those obligations, he said.

“It is big corporate America. It is not mom and pop,” Adkins said. “They’re larger than Marriott.”

Ruling in, ruling out

Airbnb maintains that it complements the hotel industry, offering overflow space for big events such as University of Tennessee football games when Knoxville hotels are booked. The company points to the continued growth in hotels statewide as evidence that traditional lodgers aren’t hurting.

As calls for regulation grew, Airbnb and similar companies lobbied the Tennessee General Assembly to prevent cities from banning short-term rentals. A bill targeting only Nashville narrowly passed the House, but stalled in a Senate committee. It may come back up this year, leading cities to pass regulations pre-emptively.

Most communities allow short-term rentals with a special permit, and it should be a local government matter, Adkins said. But Airbnb wants the state to pre-emptively declare them legal in any location, he said.

In general, short-term rental regulations recognize three types:

  • Owner-occupied houses in residential neighborhoods, rented as a whole or in part;
  • Rentals, owner-occupied or not, in mixed-use areas or commercial areas that allow some residential use; and
  • Rental locations in residential areas with absentee, non-resident owners.

Rentals owned by absentee investors are probably growing the fastest, Adkins said. Those are also the type local governments seek to ban or regulate most strictly.

Nashville began regulating short-term rentals in 2015, allowing them with a permit and collection of local taxes, but that ordinance has been criticized as inadequate and hard to enforce. So on Jan. 16, Nashville Metro Council is expected to choose between three new ordinances on short-term rental.

One is a committee-created compromise that would cap, but not prohibit, rental of houses that aren’t owner-occupied. Another, opposed by Airbnb and other rental companies, would phase out investor-owned short-term rentals in residential areas over three years.

The third would grandfather in existing non-owner-occupied rentals but prevent new ones in residential neighborhoods.

In mid-2017 Memphis applied its noise control, garbage, anti-discrimination and fire codes to short-term rentals, in conjunction with specific taxes and an agreement allowing firms such as Airbnb to submit taxes to the city on behalf of its hosts.

Knoxville resident Mike Cohen rents out his West Knoxville residence via Airbnb. Cohen has opened his home to guests through the service for the past three years.

Also in 2017 Chattanooga created a special short-term rental district, which went into effect Oct. 1. It removed the requirement for such rentals to be zoned like apartments. The zone includes the central city and much of North Shore. Property owners have to buy short-term rental permits, and non-resident owners have to also pass a city council hearing if neighbors are opposed.

Knoxville's short-term rental ordinance

Last among Tennessee’s major cities, Knoxville approved a short-term rental ordinance in November, which took effect Jan. 2. Under it, short-term rental hosts must get a permit, meet minimum safety requirements and collect hotel and occupancy taxes.

Owner-occupants in Knoxville neighborhoods and owners of property in generally non-residential areas that still allow some residential use can apply for one-year renewable permits. Absentee owners of short-term rentals in residential neighborhoods can get only a one-year non-renewable permit, which must be submitted by Feb. 1, and then only if they can show the home was already being used as a short-term rental before March 1, 2017. Permit applications are available at knoxvilletn.gov/STRS.
