What is Slice of Life?

Slice of Life is a recent Supreme Court Decision that specifically addresses two things with relation to Short Term Rentals.

  1. Single House Keeping Unit

  2. STR’s are permitted where they are regulated.

The Slice of Life case was able to distinguish the difference between transient STR uses and permanency which is a household use. This allows townships to draft smart regulation to permit and designate areas where they can exist if they are registered and compliant.

Who is Val Kleyman?

The objective of Slice of Life and Val Kleyman (Founder) is to promote best practices in the STR industry, expand the areas where they are allowed, promote Airbnb & VRBO host compliance and Airbnb & VRBO host speaking engagements where STR owners and government officials can come share ideas and improve relations.

Started in the Pocono Mountains, a prominent tourist destination, Val Kleyman and Slice of Life have been at the forefront for over a decade and have complied with many ordinances that are being enacted to police and manage the STR uses.

In recent years, many townships, boroughs, municipalities and HOA’s had opposing views on the subject largely due to a few non-compliant rental properties.  This has tainted the ability for municipalities to effectively achieve Airbnb & VRBO host compliance through traditional means. This is where Slice of Life comes in with a new approach.
