Renting out rooms daily or weekly? You better read this.

There has been some lumpy enforcement and crackdowns around the country since specific laws came into place in 2016.

Illegal short-term holiday rentals, advertised and promoted by online portals like Air BnB, are coming under increasing scrutiny from authorities. Although there has been laws preventing short-term property rentals acting as ‘hotels’, the law has been loosely enforced with some condo developments around the country acting as de facto hotels and listing in many online booking websites.

 

This week says a court in Hua Hin ruled it was illegal for people to rent out their condos or rooms on a daily or weekly basis.

 

While AirBnB was not specifically mentioned in the Hua Hin court case, the home-share system has grown to the point where Thailand’s legally registered hotels are calling foul.

Yes, I remember reading about this issue in Phuket a few years back. I'd be extremely careful about investing in property rentals such as condo, beach or party houses for daily/ weekly rental as the future of these businesses is uncertain.

What when you are told a couple of rooms isn't worth the authorities time?

sounds like all the news is about condo building, i wonder if private houses renting out rooms is still considered ok?

You don’t understand. The rich make the regulations to benefit themselves and fools like you help.
