If you own a rental property with two units and you do not live in one of the units OR if you own a rental property with more than two units, you must obtain an Accommodation Business Licence.
ONE Accommodation Business Licence is required if you own one property with any number units (unless two units and you live in one of the units) or multiple properties and each property has two to four units. Additional Accommodation Business Licences are required for each property with five or more units.
Please read The Rental Property Business Licence Information Sheet prior to completing this form.
