I own an apartment and sublet it full time via AirBNB. The service management company of the building (SMC) email twice that i have breached the lease and that what i am doing is Trade/Commercial.
“carry on or permit upon the Demised Premises any trade or business any
trade or business whatsoever or suffer to be done on the Premises any other
thing…whereby any insurance effected by the Lessor under this Lease may be
rendered void or voidable”
Someone advised the following:
Emma is advertising the Flat for short term let on the AirBNB.
This website allows consumers to search and book short-term stays at properties across various worldwide cities.
Property owners advertise their properties on AirBNB with a view to
charging people for staying for short periods in their property and thereby
making a profit. Therefore, as i am is advertising the Flat to let for a fee, it is arguable that this activity would constitute both the selling of a service (I.E. access to the Flat) and a commercial activity (I.E. charging a fee for staying at the Flat).
Therefore advertising his flat for let on Air B&B, i am allowing the Flat to be used for the purposes of carrying on a trade
or business as prohibited by the Lease.
Any comments? true? i was very sure it was not true.
Thanks in advance.
