    Airbnb are still advertising daily rentals for private properties, and they didn't bother to enforce? Otherwise why nobody get caught yet?

    They can set all kind of laws they want, but if they don't enforce, it is just that - "a piece of paper"! People then think that they can just ignore the "law" because they are just for "show", wayang...............

    it was mentioned that article
    "The new law will also limit the number of unrelated tenants in private apartments to six, down from the currently allowed eight. "

    will it have any impact ?
    no aware of any news of actions taken against AirBnb and those hosts despite new law being passed in 2017-02-26.

    those who stayed within the old guideline (8) will continue to stay in the new guideline (6).
    those who stay on the gray area will continue to stay in the gray area.
    does the above guideline forbid hot bunking? it maybe interpreted that only 6 occupants INSIDE the unit at the same time. with hotbunking, a total of 18 occupants, 6 at each 8hour time slots.

    Likely to be based on neighborhood report. More tenants more noise and neighbor not happy, knowing the rule they will happily report to mgmt or police (?).

    The three laws of Kelonguni:

    Where there is kelong, there is guni.
    No kelong no guni.
    More kelong = more guni.

    In this case, the authorities seem to emphasise more on the number rather than the duration.

    You can sense the stance from the articles.

    Numbers and address wise, my tenants tell me the authorities check it through their employers and are quite serious about it.

    thank you for mentioning uber/grab.

    but instead of sidetracking, let's get back to the statement
    "With official clarity and stance, agents cannot claim ignorance and there will be clear penalties. I think this will drastically reduce vacancies by the end of the year."

    we are only at the 1st part "With official clarity and stance, agents cannot claim ignorance and there will be clear penalties."
    have not even begin to discuss the 2nd part "I think this will drastically reduce vacancies by the end of the year."

    so let's begin again:
    how were the previous rules/guidelines not clear?

    is this why you say the rules are unclear?
