Short Term Only

Some apartment buildings are built for residents, but are used for short term stays (hotel style accommodation) that causes problems for residents.  Some apartment buildings are only built for short term stays, and are trying to keep out long term tenants and owner occupiers.

"Quest on Story resident Cameron Green said that unless he and the owners of another eight apartments in the inner-city Kangaroo Point building could find the money to fight a legal battle, they would be out on the streets.

The residents bought their homes unaware that under the town plan they could only be used for short-term stays.

In many cases the apartments were advertised as suitable for first home buyers, the new owners received first home buyer's grants and in all cases solicitors carried out all the relevant searches."
