Belfast duo charged over renting properties to tourists
THE tourist board is taking two people to court for renting their houses out as tourist accommodation without approval from Tourism NI.
David Stewart and Stuart Campbell both face charges of letting out their properties without a certificate under the Tourism Order (NI) 1992.
Mr Stewart is accused of letting out an apartment in Cabin Hill Close, off the Upper Newtownards Road in east Belfast, between March 26 and April 17 this year.
Mr Campbell is alleged to have committed the same offence with his property on Richardson Street, close to the Ravenhill Road, in the south of the city between March 26 and May 15 this year.
Both cases are due to be heard at Belfast Departmental Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
