Short-term rental accommodation hosts, guests, letting agents and online booking platform operators in NSW will soon be subject to strict new laws with a mandatory Code of Conduct for the industry to begin in December.
Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation, Kevin Anderson, said the new Code, which was released today, includes clear guidance and obligations for hosts and guests centred on minimum standards of good behaviour. Also included are formal avenues for complaints and dispute resolution and the ability for NSW Fair Trading to ban problematic hosts or anti-social guests from booking short-term rentals for five years. The Code of Conduct which can be viewed here will come into force on 18 December 2020.
