I have a request for a booking for early next year for 1 month.
The request seems to be genuine- they have had 1 review which was from a superhost and have 5 verifications.
They want to stay a total of 30 days, however I have heard of things in other countries whereby guests stay longer than a month and automatically have the same rights as a full time renter. Does anyone know the law around this in Melbourne, Australia?
Also, how did Airbnb calculate the cost for the 30 days? I don’t even have those periods open for next year, so what formula would it have used to calculate how much it will cost the guest?
As they will be staying for 30 days, it is by far the longest stay we have had. We don’t fully feel comfortable with someone staying that long as a lot of damage to the apartment can happen in that period. Is it reasonable to ask the guest if we can have a mid stay inspection? Or is that too much? I’m thinking its probably too much but just checking what other peoples thoughts are.
Lastly, she appears to be quite a well known lawyer (well, she has her own website at least). I have been very weary about identity verification on AirBnb… if she has connected a Facebook and done an Offline ID verification, does this mean that Airbnb have verified that the name of her AirBnb account is the same as the name on her License and Facebook?
Thanks in advance!
