New rules take effect today on short-term rentals, and hosts will have to start paying extra fees. However, people won't be able to rent out a second home or any property they don’t live in. Similar laws are already in effect in Santa Monica. But this one covers the city of Los Angeles, which means Venice, Silverlake, Hollywood, and downtown LA.
