Short-Term Rental Accommodation (STRA) You must register your property before 1 November to take bookings for summer.


The NSW Government has implemented a new statewide regulatory framework for short-term rental accommodation (STRA), which includes a new planning framework, fire safety standards for STRA dwellings, and a new Government-run STRA Register. The new framework complements the mandatory Code of Conduct and changes to strata legislation made by the Department of Fair Trading.

Our Service

Safety Compliance Group provides tailored solutions to meet the individual needs of property owners. Some owners require an on-site visit by one of our safety professionals to markup the site, while others prefer to perform the markups themselves. After the markups are complete, the diagrams are created to suit your property and the draft is sent for your approval.


We can then either supply you with the compliant diagrams as print-ready PDF files for your own installation, or we can provide an installation service for your convenience and peace of mind.


We are also able to supply any wireless smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, and fire blankets that might be required for compliance.


With experienced teams of qualified and trusted technicians working throughout New South Wales (NSW), Safety Compliance Group is pleased to provide these vital and mandatory fire safety services to STRA managers or individual property hosts.


Under the new rules, short-term rental accommodation is defined by the NSW Government as “a dwelling used by the host to provide accommodation in the dwelling on a commercial basis for a temporary or short-term period”.

Hosted vs. Non-Hosted STRA

  • hosted short-term rental accommodation means short-term rental accommodation provided where the host resides on the premises during the provision of the accommodation.
    (Note: ‘Hosted’ means the owner needs to be living on the property but not necessarily in the home being rented, for example, homeowners who live on a property with a granny flat are able to rent out the granny flat 365 days of the year.)
  • non-hosted short-term rental accommodation means short-term rental accommodation provided where the host does not reside on the premises during the provision of the accommodation.
