Short Term Rentals


The Town of Fraser recently passed Ordinance NO. 449 Series of 2017 establishing rules and regulations relating to the registration and operation of short term rentals (STR). Effective December 17, 2017 all property owners that desire to rent a residential dwelling or a portion thereof for less than 30 days are required to maintain a current short term rental registration.

The registration fee and annual renewal fee is $150. Registration must be renewed annually, and the term for registration shall commence upon approval of the registration. Once registration is approved the STR proof of registration will be mailed to the address provided. Proof of current registration must be posted in a conspicuous location within the Short-Term Rental property.

For your convenience STRs can be registered
If you prefer you can also register in person at Fraser Town Hall at 153 Fraser Ave, Fraser, CO 80442.

The property shall have a Fraser business license in order to operate in the Town. The business license may be obtained by the homeowner or a property management company. The business license application fee and annual renewal fee is $40. The license must be renewed annually, and the annual term for the business license is June 1- May 31. Property Management Companies that manage multiple STR properties require only one business license, not one per STR. The business license must also be posted in a conspicuous location, at the home or at the property management company.

All STRs must maintain a state sales tax license and remit the required sales and lodging taxes through the Colorado Department of Revenue.
Current Sales Tax Rates:
Fraser 5%, County 1.3%, State 2.9% and Lodging 1.8%
