SINGAPORE - Singapore began seeking public feedback on proposals to allow short-term rentals of private homes such as those on Airbnb.

The government is seeking feedback on issues such as what homes should qualify and the responsibilities of short-term accommodation platforms, the Urban Redevelopment Authority said on Monday.

The proposed rules require that a significant majority of owners in a condominium agree to the presence of short-term rentals in their development.

The agency also proposed an annual rental cap of 90 days that a property can be used for short-term rentals.

Earlier this month, a Singapore court fined two Airbnb hosts a total of $60,000 each for unauthorized short-term letting.
