Renting part of your property on Airbnb becomes easier in Brussels
Rudi Vervoort's draft ordinance introduces a derogation from obtaining the town planning certificate when tourist accommodation does not lead to the disappearance of the housing function.
Brussels Minister-President Rudi Vervoort (PS) presented to the government on Thursday a draft ordinance aimed at replacing the text in force since 2014. This revision, however, is still part of the same philosophy, namely the search for a balance between the economic activity and the protection of "ordinary" long-term housing.
He noted on twitter that "This Thursday, a draft ordinance on tourist accommodation was presented to the #BruGov. This new ordinance will allow, among other things, the supervision of competition but also the protection of future operators."
The proposed changes above all make it possible to provide a little flexibility at the administrative level and to apply the principle of proportionality of the European Commission, whose 2019 formal notice questioned the compatibility of the Brussels regulations with European law.
