Short-term-rental regulations come to Vancouver, after a big lobbying effort from Airbnb

September 28th, 2016 · 10 Comments

So the city has come out with its proposed new rules for regulating short-term rentals. City report is here and my quickie hit here.

This is already prompting a lot of questions on Twitter, many from people wondering how the city will stop people from declaring that their former basement suites are now part of the main house and they’re just renting out a bedroom in their principal residence, not really converting a secondary suite.

I’m doing a story for deadline so would like to see any other questions and concerns you have about how these new regulations will really work out.
