Regulating Home-Sharing in South Australia: A Response to Lazar

Victoria Shute


This commentary responds to Alex Lazar’s article in this volume entitled ‘Home-Sharing in South Australia: Protecting the Rights of Hosts, Guests, and Neighbours’. It concurs with two conclusions reached by Lazar: first, that there is adequate legal protection for hosts and their guests, and therefore no present need for reform in this area; and secondly, that there are few remedies available to neighbours who are affected by home-sharing, which is a problem that may require greater council oversight. Part I discusses home-sharing as a land use by reference to the Development Act 1993 (SA) and Development Regulations 2008 (SA). Part II then proffers some suggestions on how home-sharing could be regulated under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (SA) or the Local Nuisance and Litter Control Act 2016 (SA).
