Article Summary: 

The Spring 2020 issue of the CCI Toronto Condovoice Magazine discusses the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal's (LPAT) ruling in favor of the City of Toronto's short-term rental by-laws. The by-laws establish new regulations for short-term rentals, permitting them within a host's principal residence but prohibiting dedicated short-term rentals offered within investment properties ("ghost hotels"). The by-laws also impose new restrictions and requirements on hosts and short-term rental platforms like Airbnb. The article outlines the enforcement powers and penalties associated with the by-laws and explains the implementation phases for licensing and registration of short-term rentals.
