The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has made some suggestions to be considered as part of a regulatory framework for using private homes as short-term accommodation (STA). These include private apartment and condominium owners who want to rent out their homes for STA will be able to do so for 90 days a year, provided they fulfil several requirements. The requirements include obtaining 80 per cent consent from owners within their development, and they will also need to register their guests’ details. In 2015, URA had conducted a public consultation exercise to better understand the public’s views on using private homes for short-term accommodation, such as those being offered on Airbnb’s website. After reviewing the feedback received, URA worked with several agencies to develop a framework to regulate the use of private residential properties for short-term accommodation. URA is now seeking public feedback on the suggestions, with the closing date for submissions on 31 May 2018.
