IS AIRBNB LEGAL IN AUSTRALIA?



Posted September 13, 2016Web-based sharing sites and apps like eBay, Uber and AIRBNB haverevolutionised the way in which we use and sell goods and services.Rather than a straight transaction with a seller and a buyer and nointermediary, these sites do not sell anything at all. Rather, theyintroduce a person wanting to sell with a person wanting to buy. Theparties then conduct the transaction between themselves. Thesedisruptive matchmakers are currently testing the limits ofAustralia’s existing legal and regulatory framework. This articleunpacks the different facets of the way our current laws are fallingshort of interfacing with the new breed of disruptors, using Airbnb com.au as an example.

OTHER REGULATORY ISSUES



There are also numerous other regulatory matters that round out theconfusion. Mostly, they involve a lack of regulation in areas suchas:* Food, health and safety regulations;* Fire or disability access regulations; and* The requirement for public liability insurance.***What do you think about Airbnb’s current ambiguous legal status inAustralia? Let us know your thoughts on LegalVision’s Twitter twitter.com

VSC



com.au considered whether Airbnb was a sublease or licence. In this case, alandlord, Ms Swan (landlord), owned a two bedroom apartment inMelbourne (apartment) which she leased to the tenants Uecker & Greaves(tenants) in August 2015 for a 12-month lease (lease).The tenants then listed the apartment on Airbnb to third party guestsfor short-term stays. The landlord upon discovery initiatedproceedings because the tenants had sublet the apartment unlawfully tothird parties without the landlord’s consent.At first instance, in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal(VCAT), it was held that the tenants only granted licences rather thanleases to the Airbnb guests com.au As such, the VCAT ruled that the tenants had not sublet the apartment.However, the Supreme Court overturned the original VCAT decision,deciding that the tenants had let the whole apartment and that it wasa sublease rather than a licence. This sublease was considered abreach of the tenant’s lease which prohibited subleasing.This case considered the narrow issue of subleasing and that thelandlord’s consent was required. It did not consider whether Airbnbitself was illegal. In fact, a test case may be difficult given thediffering laws between Australian states and territories and withinlocal government areas.

COUNCIL ZONING LAWS



The law treats Airbnb differently depending upon which state theAirbnb rental is situated, but there is also an issue betweendifferent local government areas within states.For example, local councils in New South Wales regulate short-termholiday rentals. The Zoning Laws or Local Environmental Plan of aparticular council determines whether an individual can let a propertyas a holiday rental. A breach of these laws can result in action beingtaken under the planning laws or more generally under the_Environmental Protection Act 1979_ (NSW) (EPA).Interestingly, third parties can bring an action under the EPA whereindividuals use property without the necessary planning approval.This law means that it is possible for an industry association (suchas a hoteliers association), neighbours or a local council couldprosecute a resident for letting their property on Airbnb.For instance, the Sydney Morning Herald reported in 2015 that RandwickCouncil had issued a letter threatening property owners with a finefor renting their properties on Airbnb. This penalty was on the countof operating an unauthorised bed and breakfast establishment.

TAX AVOIDANCE



Airbnb arrangements have also come under fire with the AustralianTaxation Office (ATO). This heat was due to the fact the sharingeconomy lets people operate “commercial arrangements”, which canbe used to evade tax, including Capital Gains Tax and GST.Technically income earned from an Airbnb short-term holiday let mustbe declared to the tax office, but many avoid this obligation, whichis easy to do without a firm regulation of the industry.
