Hanover, NH

In 2020, after considerable study of the STR market and example regulatory mechanisms, the Town of Hanover decided to regulate STRs. The Town distinguishes between hosted STRs, where the owner is present on the premises through the rental, and unhosted STRs, where the owner is not present. STRs may not be operated by investors (the STR must be the owner’s principal residence), and unhosted STRs are not permitted in ADUs. STRs must be registered with the Town. The STR regulations, though passed in 2020, became active with the adoption of broad rental regulations in 2022.
