I live in a small block of beachfront residential units on the Gold Coast in Qld. Recently, a neighbour has decided to rent his unit out through Air BnB. He does not live there anymore. Suddenly, we are having frequent issues with extra noise, parties, unruly behaviour, unknown people wandering around day and night and people knocking on neighbours doors asking "how to check in".
I have complained to the Body Corp and owners about these issues who claim there isn't much that can be done. The owners do not seem to care and do nothing to address the concerns of permanent residents.
Does anyone have any advice or suggestions on how to combat this ? Do I lodge a complaint with Council, Police, ATO, Air BnB ?
Thanks for any assistance.
Thank-you everyone for your insightful comments and helpful suggestions ;) They have all been taken onboard.
I will just wait now until I hear back from the GCCC and I will be sure to let you know the outcome of that investigation.
It may very well be the case that they can't take action or shut it down immediately, and I am ok with that.
But what I do know is, the laws will only change when long suffering neighbours stand up to absent investors turning residential buildings into quasi motels and report them to the relevant authority.
If we do nothing, nothing will change.
All the best.
