NSW Short Term Letting Policy Deferred

On the 9 April 2021, the NSW government announced a new statewide policy for Short Term Rental Accommodation (STRA).

The commencement of this policy has been deferred to 1 November 2021.

The new STRA laws will override all short-term accommodation planning laws previously in place throughout NSW, including those enacted by local councils. (until the policy takes effect the regulation of STRA in NSW will continue to be the responsibility of local councils and owners corporations).

The NSW Government has implemented:

  • a new statewide regulatory framework for short-term rental accommodation (STRA)
  • fire safety standards for STRA dwellings
  • a government-run STRA Register
  • the STRA Code of Conduct and exclusion register that took effect on 18 December 2020
