Paid guest accommodation

Council has introduced rating categories for houses and units rented to paying guests for temporary accommodation purposes. These properties have a commercial focus, and in Council’s opinion, should be charged at a higher rate than a residence housing a family or tenant on a long-term basis. Council hopes to encourage more properties to be made available on the long-term rental market.

If your property is offered or available for rent to paid guests for temporary accommodation purposes, please contact Council on 3403 8888, or complete the online form.
