Short Term Rental Accommodation (STRA)

Log in to register or renew your short-term rental accommodation property on the STRA Register

The STRA Register is available for hosts to register their STRA property. Click the button below to be taken to the Government register. You will need to create a NSW Planning Portal account or log-in with your Service NSW account.

Register now

If you recently received an email asking to update your details on the STRA Register, click the Register now button above and log in using your existing account details. Available instructions on how to add the host and registrant are available here.

STRA registration only applies to residential accommodation such as houses, units and terraces. You do not need to register a caravan, tent or moveable dwelling.

Completed STRA registrations will be issued with a STRA Property ID number (PID-STRA-XXXX) which is to be displayed on an online property listing.

All hosts must comply with the fire and safety requirements and agree to follow the code of conduct before their registration is completed.

Renewing a STRA registration

STRA properties must be renewed annually from the date of the original registration to remain active on the STRA Register. The renewal fee is $25.

A STRA registration can be renewed from 45 days before the renewal expiry date.

Hosts will receive email reminders to renew their registration at 45 days, 30 days and 7 days prior to the renewal expiry date.

Renewals can be completed by logging into the NSW Planning Portal and selecting the ‘Renew my listing’ from the Action button beside the listing.

Registrants who have multiple STRA premises will need to renew and provide payment for each property separately.

All registrations with incomplete details will be required update the required information prior to the renewal.

What happens if I do not renew my STRA registration?

If a premises is not renewed by the expiry date, the registration is held for a further 3 months before it is automatically de-registered. During the three-month period, the dwelling is not to be used for STRA and the registration is blocked from accepting bookings from online booking platforms.

Once the property is de-registered it cannot be renewed and a new property registration must be completed before the dwelling can be used for STRA once again.
