Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy previously said a new licensing system may be needed to “properly regulate” the home-sharing market.

THERE ARE CALLS for homes listed on websites like Airbnb to be registered with councils and Revenue – or in some cases require change-of-use planning permission.

The Oireachtas Housing Committee is recommending that any short-term letting of more than 90 days should require change-of-use planning permission.

While the committee recommends that those who rent out their primary residence for 90 days or less should be exempt from planning permission, it says they should be registered with local councils.

Last month, Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy said a new licensing system may be needed to “properly regulate” the home-sharing market.

What do you think: Should homes listed on Airbnb be registered with local councils?
