  • Rates crack down on let holiday homes

    The pressure is coming on those who let their Queenstown and Wanaka holiday homes for profit to pay the correct amount of rates.
    Under a 2009 plan change, the Queenstown Lakes District Council required owners of such properties to register with the council and accept a rate increase of about 25%

    Just more theft of property rights.
    How can such nonsense be legal?

    Wasn't it the likes of motel owners who were complaining ?
    They had to pay commercial rates where holiday lets; sometimes sleeping 10 or so people, did not.

      Fair enough too.

      Commercial activity = commercial costs.
