An increasing number of European cities are jumping on the anti-Airbnb train as the home-sharing giant continues to face opposition and criticism.
Locals in cities like Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Krakow, Munich, Paris and Vienna argue the increase in short-term rental properties makes it harder and less affordable for residents to find decent housing options in their home cities. Housing shortages are widespread in these cities as properties are snatched up by residents looking for a second income and are occupied by a rotating door of disruptive visitors.
Ten European cities wrote one joint letter to the European Parliament and European Commission, urging the issue to be on the newly elected officials’ agenda. They are asking for the right to be able to enact their own regulations on short-term rentals, which would vary depending on the city’s needs and individual issues.
These cities are concerned the company does not adhere to the same rules local landlords must follow and, instead, have their own set of guidelines tenants must follow, which do not always comply with local laws.
