Recently, I was invited by strata management company Dynamic Property Services to sit on a panel, together with other strata ‘experts’, and answer a range of questions asked by strata owners.

One of those questions was: what to do about short term letting in strata?

Below I share with you my personal notes made in preparation for answering the various aspects of that important question:

What action can an owners corporation take to prevent owners from leasing their lots under a short-term letting arrangement?

What if the development consent for the site is silent on the issue?

How does an owners corporation engage with Councils to have them deal with the problem?

What further action needs to happen here to have Local/State Government deal with the problem?

What implications, if any, impact upon the owners’ corporation insurance?

Want to know more? In this podcast episode, I discussed with Karen Stiles of the Owners Corporation Network how short term letting led to an extra 1000 residents and 18 illegal brothels in one city building.
