Camden Council: Airbnb Is Worsening The Capital’S Housing Shortage

Recommended Posts

A report published today directly links the scale of short-term lettings of London properties on popular holiday-let websites like Airbnb with pushing up rents and making it ever more difficult for people to find somewhere to live; adding to the capital’s housing crisis.

Interesting, given that just a few days ago the Greater London Council changed their laws allowing this type of short term letting.

So it looks like the GLC and some councils are not in agreement.

What a confused and silly article

I agree entirely with it.

I live in the west country but work in london during the week. I would estimate that my cost of accommodation has doubled since the landlord that i was staying with for 2 years decided in 2012 that she could make more money from her room in 4 nights a month than 4 nights a week. I now stay in a Travelodge, because it is cheaper than renting a room.
