The ability for unit owners to rent out their units for short term accommodation via sites such as âAirbnbâ or âStayzâ has long been a grey area, with many body corporates attempting to stop these types of rentals from happening by attempting to enforce by-laws which have been explicitly drafted to exclude short term rentals. It has been an ongoing tug-of-war between unit owners and Body Corporates, with each vying for the âwinningâ position. It appears that the âwinnerâ has now been determined, and the recent decision of the Body Corporate for Hilton Park CTS 27490 v. Colin Robertson  by the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal has provided clarity for unit owners by ruling that they are legally entitled to offer their units for short-term rentals (through schemes such as Airbnb or Stayz) and that any attempt made by the Body Corporate to restrict such use by way of a by-law or other means is invalid and will not be enforceable.
