Airbnb agrees to limit private rentals in London, Amsterdam

SFGate Thursday, 1 December 2016 ()
THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Airbnb will start enforcing limits to private home rentals in two popular European cities on the home-sharing platform, London and Amsterdam, the San Francisco company said Thursday. The move comes amid complaints from some cities that the booming house sharing sector can lead to illegal hotels and contribute to housing shortages. In London, Airbnb said it will “introduce new and automated limits to help ensure entire home listings in London are not shared for more than 90 days,” unless hosts prove they have permission to share their space for longer. Barcelona Mayor Ada Colau told Catalunya Radio that while tourism was a positive asset for the Spanish city, it had grown too much and was denying locals access to housing.
