The building complex in Prague 1 examined the announced association of apartment owners from the center of Prague that one of the apartments is used as an accommodation facility. He decided that this apartment must comply with the same building regulations as hotels and guesthouses. The opinion of Prague 1 will be confirmed two weeks ago by the Department of Civil Engineering. Establishing a precedent for providers of this type of hostel.
The apartment with Airbnb is like before the covid, some of which will be re-approved
Properties rented for short-term accommodation often function similarly to hotels or boarding houses, and the original idea of a shared hostel, when the owner and the guest lived in the same household, has disappeared. The employee pays for a vacant apartment unit in a similar way as, for example, for renting an apartment.
In addition, the residents of the house often stayed for short-term visitors. Some tourists are hurt and do not respect that they stayed in a flat apartment house, where people go. The benefits fall on the fact that the short-term rent increases the price of rented housing for the city up.
According to the latest opinions, this way of using some flats and houses is in conflict with their approved decision, because the building regulations and conditions for accommodation facilities and long-term housing are different.
The process of review within the framework of the approved decision cannot be seen as a regulation, but as an effective enforcement of valid laws. If the owner of a hotel or boarding house has to meet the written conditions according to the building regulations, then the same conditions should be met by the property owner, who provides short-term accommodation services, explains Hana Kordov Marvanov (for STAN).
They have it in their hands
According to Kordov Marvanov, the decision of the series will to some extent set a precedent for a similar examination. He adds that the opinions of building councils will always depend on the specific cases and conditions under which the owner operates short-term accommodation services.
Owners of housing units used in accordance with ad in conflict with the building permit may apply for re-approval. The apartment and the house should meet the conditions generally imposed on accommodation facilities of a similar type, such as hotels, hostels, guesthouses. This means that the owner must comply with regulations, especially in the field of fire protection and hygiene.
He should use the property in accordance with the land and have the consent of the property owner. The extent of specific rights before re-approval depends on the specific situation of the house, apartment and location. In fact, according to Kordov Marvanov in Prague, there will probably be a certain reduction in the number of apartments that the owner rents for short-term hostels.
It is important that the city center, especially the city center, is not depopulated and that there are preserved flats for long-term living, contrary to the full of land, which is the need to live in specific city walls.
Dan as from the company
The courts made it clear again this year. In summer, they confirmed that short-term rental income through both the Airbnb and Booking platforms must be taxed as business income, not as rental income, as some accommodation providers have done.
Covid’s flatness to solve problems with Airbnb, said in Rozstel f Alcron
It is necessary to add, because in this case, a big change will not happen. The fact that Airbnb is in principle one of the providers of accommodation services, not rent, is generally known, at least since 2017. If someone can provide the accommodation service at random (does not advertise and do not offer it systematically) and does not receive income of less than tens of thousands of crowns a year, then this income is exempt from taxes and will not be included in the tax return, Mirka Tomkov, tax adviser to KODAP City.
This is especially true of Finann, according to which the decision to take the day of the jumps will not be missed. In addition, for smaller landlords, from a financial point of view, it is often even more appropriate to tax these incomes as from a business. Here, too, there are a few points to keep in mind.
