Proposed Changes – Short Term Accommodation Laws

The NSW Government is currently implementing a new regulatory framework for the short-term rental accommodation industry.

1. The framework includes:

  • Changes to planning laws
  • A mandatory code of conduct
  • Introduction of an industry-led register of short-term rental accommodation properties

2. The NSW Government is seeking feedback on the following:

  • Draft ‘Code of Conduct for the Short-Term Rental Accommodation Industry’ (the Code) that will apply to hosts, guests, online booking platforms and letting agents
  • Draft Fair Trading Amendment (Code of Conduct for Short-Term Rental Accommodation Industry) Regulation 2019 that will support the Code’s implementation
  • Proposed introduction of an industry-led short-term rental accommodation property register
  • Draft planning instruments, which will allow residential premises to be used for short-term rental accommodation under certain conditions and provide a state-wide definition of short-term rental accommodation

3. Have your say on the short-term rental accommodation reforms.
