Residential Tenancies (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2018: Second Stage
-----to his response as I know he will be kind enough to engage sooner or later with the issues.
On the section relating to short-term lettings, the intention is that this would not catch people who are home sharers, as he has clarified. Is that because it is already provided for in the legislation or is it because he proposes in forthcoming regulations to ensure that such people are not caught? I am thinking in the first instance of the 14-day cap, where short-term lettings for periods not exceeding 14 days would be considered a material change in use. Is it the case that this would not apply to people who are sharing or letting out a room in their house because that would be provided for in regulations or is it the case that this is the existing law?
