Charles Miéville and Victoria Du Croz write for Prime Resi

Residential Property Partner Charles Miéville, and Head of Planning, Victoria Du Croz, write for PrimeResi on the government’s new planning rules for short-term rentals.

Over the last decade Airbnb has become a booming business, but this increase in rentals has led to a shortage of properties on the normal rental market. As such, the government is considering introducing a requirement for planning permission for use of properties for short-term rentals, to help resolve the lack of availability.

In their article, Charles and Victoria outline the likely effects this will have on the property market and highlight the complexities faced by those tasked with policing the use of properties.
