Short-stay letting has a horrendous history. Damage to its reputation and property, is a gamble for investors and homeowners alike. Noosa Council’s “Short -stay” law addresses controversial issues and the impact on residential amenity. (Advertiser, 24/11).
It concerns the regulation of minimum safety standards of properties and a “code of conduct” for tenants, considering almost 90% of landlords live outside the shire, with half outside the state. With regard to behaviour issues of short-term tenants and complaints, the law requires the availability of local representatives on short notice.
This guarantees local complainants see immediate action over real concerns, with a 24-hour hotline monitored by security. Short-stay renting and home stay history, are marred with disaster and horror stories. It is a lucrative risk owners are willing to take.
Noosa Council is aware of public expectations, after 600 written submissions from a concerned public, regarding the impact of short-term tenants on local harmony. This law clarifies the responsibilities for both landlords and renters, protecting all parties alike.
Good Guv’mint wishes to fix the economy/ Debt and Deficit, by hoping that everyone will spend their “damn lot” of money saved during the pandemic to buy things they don’t need to impress people they don’t like. How good’s a Christmas wish?
