Hmm. Can't say I like airbnb.

If you touch on the question of how to be an Airbnb Superhost without being a nuisance to the neighbours, some people on here might be interested to hear what was said.

I don't know much about Airbnb, but I would hate my neighbours, who are absent landlords, to start this short letting scheme. There's only four of us on our floor and it would be awful to have so many strangers coming and going.

We had this problem in our block. One tenant was sub letting his flat and then crashing at his boyfriend's place when necessary. I was tired of drunk tourists coming past my window at 3am, braying and treating the place like a hotel. So I snitched on him to the housing association and he was gone. No regrets.

Holiday lets are a nuisance. We already live in uncomfortably close proximity to our neighbours in London and can hear everything through the ceilings/floors. Then we have a different group of tourists staying in every week. They've no investment in the place beyond a few days so no reason to be particularly conscientious about the neighbours or property. As you say, flat blocks aren't designed to be hotel rooms. Some cities made airbnb illegal, pity ours doesn't do the same.

Southwark Council doesn't seem to have any policy/management of leaseholders who do this.
Here at Draper Towers we keep getting holiday-makers arriving for short stays. The leaseholders are taking advantage of residents, simply cashing in because we keep the place nice.

I will admit I don't know much about Air Bnb but this just seems a way for people to exploit tourists and also exploit having a council flat?

All sorts of people offer their property for Airbnb, not particularly council tenants. The people in my block renting out this way, are leaseholders.

Agreed, it's a bloody nuisance for the real residents. Stop being greedy pigs and holiday letting on a commercial basis, in private residential properties. You are ruining people's lives. Berlin have it right and have rightly passed a law to prevent this.
