Can you please provide an update on the legislation status for allowing a strata unit of 2 being allowed to operate an Airbnb please. – Graham, NSW

Whether a lot can operate short-term letting is determined by the local council and the requirements that were imposed at the time of registering the building. This is dependant on the development consent and the local environmental plan. Some councils require that any tenant is subject to a residential tenancy agreement (lease) for a minimum duration.
