Short term rental update: Kawartha Lakes

There has been talk for months about making the minimum rental stay 30 days in Kawartha Lakes. This rule would have a huge impact in the area, especially on cottage owners that typically rent their property for a week at a time. MyKawartha said, "A city report considered the request but found that while rationales for regulations are valid, it was staff’s opinion that the issues were not pervasive enough in the City of Kawartha Lakes to warrant the implementation of a costly regulatory framework. Regardless, council pushed on the issue." We will keep you updated on the status of this issue. 

‘Status quo’ recommendation for contentious short-term rental situation in Kawartha Lakes

The contentious issue of how to handle short-term rentals in Kawartha Lakes could remain unchanged if council moves to accept a recommendation from city staff. When the matter goes before council next Tuesday, June 19 it’s expected a staff report on the matter will be referred to its Aug. 14 meeting to allow for additional information to flow in. But as is, staff is recommending “status quo and monitoring” after considering public response and the costs of enforcing a more aggressive approach to the issue.
