After 4 decades of consultations and research, it is still a no-go for short-term lease of properties here in Singapore regardless of the popularity of home-sharing services including Airbnb.URA doesn’t have proceed with proposed changes to short-term remains When some homeowners or investors may have been waiting with bated breath for the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) to act on the proposed modifications to guidelines for short-term remains, they have sadly decided not to do so for now.A proposed frame was mooted to permit owners of strata-titled improvements to rent units outside to get short-term remains with permission from owners.

Home-sharing operators such as Expedia’s Airbnb and HomeAway hope that Singapore’s government will create a framework which will be viable sans high entrance barriers.
