I have a relative in Lawndale California who is thinking about doing Airbnb. I checked the city ordinances there and found that in 2017 they passed legislation that prohibits short-term rentals. However, I see multiple rooms available there for rent via Airbnb when I did a search today. I did a search and found that there was no repeal of the original city council decision.
How are those hosts allowed to do this in spite of the ordinance? Any ideas? Thanks.
