Short Term Rental Accommodation (STRA)

Register now to let your property for summer.

The STRA register is now available for hosts to register their STRA property. Click the button below to be taken to the Government register. You will need to create a NSW Planning Portal account or log-in with your Service NSW account.

Register now

If you recently received an email asking to update your details on the STRA register, click the Register now button above and log in using your existing account details. Available instructions on how to add the host and registrant are available here.

STRA registration only applies to residential accommodation such as houses, units and terraces. You do not need to register a caravan, tent or moveable dwelling.

Completed STRA registrations will be issued with a STRA Property ID number (PID-STRA-XXXX) which is to be displayed on an online property listing.

All hosts must comply with the new fire and safety requirements and agree to follow the code of conduct before their registration is completed.

Fire safety requirements grace period

We are aware that due to COVID-19 stay at home orders, some hosts have been unable to travel to their properties or secure tradespeople to ensure they are compliant with the fire safety standards. As a temporary measure in response to the stay at home orders, we will allow a ‘grace period’ for this requirement.

We will update the STRA register on 24 September to allow hosts to register but delay the fire and safety requirement until 1 March 2022. This means hosts have an extra four months to ensure their dwelling complies with the fire safety standards.

You must still register your property before 1 November 2021 to take bookings for summer.
