Like the title says, I don’t own the property I would be hosting. It’s sort of the family vacation home, but it technically belongs to my mother. My mother is very supportive of my hosting, but she has no interest in doing the hosting herself. She points out (correctly) that what I am signing up for is a part-time and some days full-time job, and she is seventy-one, and she’s already done jobs, and honestly if it doesn’t involve spoiling my kids rotten, it isn’t a job she’s interested in. Which, I mean, that’s fair. This is my project. I’ll take care of it.
But it means that I would be signing up for airbnb and any similar websites I choose to use, and representing a property that I don’t own. Is that allowed? Or do I have to set a profile up for my mother, and list the property under her name, then make myself a co-host and make sure all the notifications and everything go to me? That seems overly complex. Surely there are enough people hosting on a rental property that ownership isn’t a requirement.
Can anyone link me to the rules on this? Googling “airbnb requirements to host” gives me things about having towels for every guest.
