Owners Corporations (Short Stay Accommodation) Bill 2016: Proposed Amendments to the Owners Corporations Act 2006 (Vic)
The ever-increasing popularity of the short stay accommodation industry (including online letting services) is causing growing unrest within strata titled developments. Regulation has been slow to catch up with the phenomenon of short stay accommodation. Owners and Owners Corporations have found themselves powerless to restrain those short stay guests who have been unruly, caused damage to property, behaved inappropriately or otherwise interfered with the ability of other lot owners to use building amenities. In an attempt to address such concerns, the Victorian Government has introduced the Owners Corporations (Short Stay Accommodation) Bill 2016.
