Can an OC create a by-law to prevent an owner occupier who is living full- time in their apartment from listing a room in their apartment on a holiday letting site such as AirBnb? Both current and once the new legislation is in place ?
If anyone knows the answer it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
The answer is “no” to both. There is no legislation currently in place that prevents an owner from letting a room while they are in residence. The new legislation (for NSW) specifically excludes homes where the “host” is present from being caught by by-laws.
