Is this about a strata?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No. I have a duplex free hold own property in whistler and I want to know if the bylaw is passed and they (whistler city council) can fine me for short term rentals when supposedly by property is in an unzoned for nightly rentals but a bed and breakfast next door exits
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 6 months ago

They can fine you if you breach the by-laws. They cannot do this retroactively but can for any rentals you have after the by-laws are passed.

I suggest that you speak to your municipal elected official and ask them to fight this. There is no real other way to take this on unfortunately.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
