Short Term Strata Rentals

Monday 29 January 2018

The government will prepare a framework for regulating short term letting following its options paper last year. It’s important that we continue to push for owners corporations’ rights to impose bans and I have created a petition to lodge in Parliament. If we get 10,000 signatures, it will initiate a debate with both major parties likely to speak in response.

Short term letting can impact on other apartment owners and occupiers including from use of common property and waste facilities, building insurance costs and noise. Strata communities should be managed democratically and not have holiday lets forced upon them. I encourage you to distribute the petition in your building and collect signatures HERE.
