London Landlords Hijack Airbnb Website

Recommended Posts

London landlords accused of hijacking AirBNB website with thousands of short term listings.


But analysis of the website by The Guardian newspaper shows that while the service aims to be a platform for individuals to let out their spare rooms, professional landlords and buy-to-let investors are swamping the site.

The newspaper’s analysis of more than 13,000 Airbnb listings in London – which is by far the site's biggest UK market – shows more than 6,600 are leasing out an entire home or flat, rather than a spare room. And over 1,500 people listing their properties on the site have multiple listings, with 180 listing five or more properties across London.

Can see a six month AST being considered a 'long term secure tenancy' in the future as everywhere is let out as short term 'holiday' lets.
