Fears as inquiry says bans on short-term leases should be lifted

An 18-month inquiry said a ban on short-term letting in all but 12 councils across the state should be lifted, but tougher regul­ation placed on “professional operators’’ who rent out a number of apartments at the same time on accommodation websites.

The industry’s opponents, espec­ially Airbnb critics, had pushed for short-term letting to be banned, especially in high-density high-rise buildings in Sydney’s inner city, which have become short-term hot spots over the past few years.
