Short Term Rentals

Implications for Short Stays, Short Term Letting  

With the growth of online platforms like AirBnB short stays or short term letting has become an issue for Owners Corporations. 

In this important case brought by the owners corporation for Watergate Docklands, the Victorian Building Appeals Board (BAB) decided to disallow short-term use of residential apartments, in what appeared a landmark win for owners corporations.

It was found that short term letting of apartments contravened the Occupancy Permit.  

Ultimately though on appeal in 2016, the Vic Supreme Court overturned that decision.
