air bnb as a landlord new regulations

Hi all,

 

I have been renting a room in my house for over 90 days and just came to my attention  about the laws that there is penalties for this and need to seek permission from the Dublin county council etc.

 

Can anyone assist me in how I ask for planning permission or should I stop to rent out my place with air bnb.

 

Is there a work around? What is the penalty should I get ‘caught’

 

Should I be worried? I know the regulation just came about in july. Is it 90 days from july or  90 days from when and what must I do to continute doing as im doing

 

I have read some of the links but am confused by it

 

Anyone in the same boat?

 

Thanks ,

Steo

You need to satis FYI yourself that you are within the regulations. Not asking someone else to clarify the small print.

All the details are on DCC website.

Generally the law only restricts the short-term letting of your entire PPR to 90 days per year or less, and prohibits any short-term letting of the entire residence if it is not your PPR, unless you obtain a change-of-use planning permission (or already have the required permission). Short-term letting of individual rooms in your PPR is still allowed without any time restrictions and without needing planning permission.
