Is your investment property approved for short-term stays?

Investors who are considering purchasing apartments need to be aware of the planning approval for the building, particularly if it is in a resort complex.

Investors in popular tourist destinations should always check if their unit is approved for either short-term or long-term stays before purchasing.

A recent court ruling found permanent residents in a Sunshine Coast complex were living in the property unlawfully, due to the fact that the building was only approved for short-term stays.

Investors who are looking to purchase properties for short-term stays can be impacted, if the accommodation has restrictions on living.

In Queensland for instance, Airbnb is governed by more than 70 different sets of local government zoning laws, with some councils imposing prohibitive planning approval requirements for short-term letting.
