Real Estate & Construction

Supreme Court rules that neighbours must consent to short-term letting

Real estate investors are increasingly renting out fully furnished apartments to tourists or business travellers for short periods. While short-term leases are highly attractive to respective lessors, owners of neighbouring apartments within a complex are usually not fond of such agreements, due to the high turnover of guests. The Supreme Court recently dealt with cease and desist proceedings instituted by apartment owners.
