News City Reaffirms Condo Rental Ruling
posted by July 31 at 15:26 PMon
The Department of Planning and Development (DPD) has reaffirmed an earlier ruling (PDF link) barring condo owners from renting out their units as hotel rooms.
The decision comes after a heated battle between condo owners at the Elektra condominium building, who filed a complaint tenants with DPD about short-term tenants last year.
Some owners at the Elektra had been renting their units for three or four days at a time, which drew complaints from neighbors who were worried about security and noise in the building.
Following DPD’s ruling, owners at the Elektra will only allowed to rent their units to tenants for a minimum of 30 days.
I’ve got a call in to DPD to see if Elektra owners will face any fines for previous short-term rental violations.
