I am looking into booking a vacation rental for our family vacation to Ashland. I have read that there are many unlicensed vacation rentals in Ashland. Apparently the city codes does not allow vacation rentals in single-family residential zones and that the city is actively shutting down the unlicensed vacation rentals. I am concerned about losing my deposit, worse yet arriving at a place that it has been shut down. Many of the listings do not provide an address so it is hard to verify their status. Has any one else faced similar situation and does anyone have any suggestion how to make sure the place you are renting is licensed?
