Government set to make major change to AirBnB rentals
ROWDY revellers who hire out AirBnBs to party late into the night will be banned from blighting neighbourhoods.
The PM hit out at “unacceptable” drunken parties in rented homes and flats after being confronted by a furious resident.
Pensioner Jeff Jones told how a local pub in his village of Great Baddow – just metres from the back of his house – is causing them regular misery.
It has been converted into a short-term let with a 10-person hot-tub and karaoke room costing £2,100-per-night.
Jeff hit out: “These places are let by the owners to groups of people with no control whatsoever.
“Anti-social behaviour and especially noise nuisance can go on through the night and there is no restriction.”
Owners will now have to register their short-term lets with the local council – and if they become party houses, they can take tough action against guests and owners.
Airbnb welcomed plans revealed late last year to introduce a national register for short-term lets.
