There is a difference between residential living and tourist accommodation. Strata Residential l regulation purposely states they are non-applicable to boarding houses, B&Bs and hotel livings. There are higher maintenance costs, insurance levies associated with a hotel business model. So isn't it a case of studying the Strata by-laws. I have a property in Battery Point. Our strata indicates that the minimum residential stay is six months. No question. Black and white.When a property is being sold, the strata clearly indicates that the building does not permit short term accommodation. So my point is what were the conditions in which this building was purchased. If this building is ever sold there should be no free capital gains concession as it was never residential but a small hotel.
