The government has released an options paper on possible ways to regulate short term holiday letting, ranging from industry self-regulation to licensing operators. The paper does not take a position and my submission will again push for owner corporations to have the power to approve, limit or ban short term letting, and for limits on when a home can be let on a short term holiday basis. Short term letting can be a great way to experience the city and help people make some extra money from a spare room or while they are away, but it needs appropriate regulation to protect community, housing affordability and neighbourhood amenity.
Comment is due 31 October and I encourage you to make a submission on how short term letting should be regulated, HERE.
