Some residents want to rent out their units for short-term accommodation. Can the management stop them?


There is no provision under the Third Schedule of the Strata Management (Maintenance And Management) Regulations 2015 that prohibits short-term rental.

However, pursuant to section 70 (2) of the Strata Management Act 2013, a Management Corporation (MC) may, by special resolution at a general meeting, make additional by laws for regulating the control, management, administration, use and enjoyment of the subdivided building or land and common property. Such additional by-laws are binding on the management, owners, tenants and occupiers.

In view of this, the MC may convene an Extraordinary General Meeting to pass a special resolution to ban the operations of any short-term rentals and may further pass a resolution to impose a fine of a maximum RM200 per day against any owner who breaches the said additional by-laws.

By having these two additional by-laws in place, the MC may stop the owners from carrying out short-term rental activities and impose a fine of RM200 per day for those who are in breach.
