Can owners use their apartments for Airbnb-type rentals? – Shirley, QLD

Yes, if you are the apartment owner, you can let it out for Airbnb. Queensland’s laws allow for Airbnb-type short-term rentals since the sunshine state attracts many tourists.

If your property is under a strata scheme, you should be especially mindful of the by-laws around short-term letting practices and keep your body corporate in the loop. You must take care to inform your guests of the by-laws and building rules as well so that they respect common property and shared amenities such as gardens, pools, etc.

You must also make your guests aware of other aspects of strata living – such as partying and security that could affect the peace and quiet in the community.
