Short-term home rentals illegal (FYI) (Singapore)
Short-term home rentals illegal, warn authorities
Rising numbers of holidaymakers around the world are using Internet booking sites to stay in homes as a cheaper, more interesting alternative to hotels, including in Singapore. But this is illegal here, the authorities have warned home owners. Renting out a room or a whole unit short-term is in breach of private and public housing rules, and owners can face tough penalties if they are caught doing so.
