After short-term rentals were banned by Dallas City Council a year ago, some are still in operation, according to a report by Candy’s Dirt:

“Members of the Dallas Short-Term Rental Alliance and the City of Dallas have been embroiled in a legal battle that was supposed to come to a head Monday in a non-jury trial, but officials involved in the matter say it has been delayed.

“Lisa Sievers, a spokeswoman for the Dallas STRA, told CandysDirt.com that operators do not anticipate the case going to trial this week “as older cases are on the court’s trial docket and the City’s appeal of the temporary injunction is ongoing.”

“The Dallas City Council banned STRs in single-family neighborhoods in a 12-3 vote about a year ago. Officials said at the time that enforcement would begin in December 2023.

“But in October, the Dallas STRA sued the City of Dallas. District Judge Monica Purdy granted a temporary injunction on Dec. 6 that allowed Dallas STR operators to continue renting their properties while the matter is tied up in litigation.”
