So here is the issue, I have been a host for over 3 years on another site which had completely different rules; quite frankly people could take the absolute mick and it was all cash in hand.
I started using airbnb at the beginning of this year because it was a much more safe way of hosting, you could see who these people are and have verifications before they book.
Now. The current issue I am facing is, I have a guest who arrived last night. He is a middle aged man from France, but he says he’s originally from Algeria.
He came, settled in and started telling me about his travels which was quite nice. Then he quickly went on to asking me to look at his CV, to amend it if need be. He has only booked for 12 days by the way if I didn’t mention.
He then this morning woke up, saw me leaving for work and decided that it would be the perfect time to ask me if I can help him look for jobs on gumtree and can he use my address for verification/authorisation. I am still confused at this point? He mentioned that he’d be planning to work here for the next couple of months and he needs to be in work by Friday.
I then went on to mention, that unless he has agreed with me to use my address he’d be going against my house rules. As guests have previously taken out phone contracts in my address and went back to their countries leaving the bills to pile up at my home.
I made it clear to him that if he plans to work here he needs to make sure he’s doing things the right way and ensure that he knows what he’s doing. I told him that I’d be back from work around 9pm tonight as I am doing overtime.
I need advice on what to do? Has anyone had similar issues?
