The NSW government has finally made a decision on its regulation of short-term letting – and as expected it’s met with a mixed reaction: Airbnb is happy,  HomeAway thinks it is a retrograde step while the hotel lobby doesn’t like it at all.  In essence, the new rules place a cap of 180 rental days on renting out entire apartments or houses while there are tighter restrictions on what absent landlords can and can’t do. There is also scope for individual building managers to ban short-term rentals in their apartment block. See coverage on ABC and Domain.
