I have been attending Airbnb meetings, public hearings, planning dept. “listening” sessions, etc. to keep up with Airbnb in Los Angeles.
Most recenty (last week) a realtor told me “airbnb is over” in L.A. meaning the City Council will vote a big NO on allowing Airbnb in Los Angeles–dispite the 1000’s of hosts who have lobbied to keep it. Does anyone have any facts to support this realtor’s claim? I waspersonally told to STOP doing Airbnb (by my apartment building manager) a month ago. I was told other hosts in apartment buildings nearby (not connected to my apartment management) received a similar legal notices to the one I received. (e.g. 3 days notice to perform or quit activity not permitted by the lease.). Of course I stopped–very abruptly (I had to cancel 18 guest reservations–actually Airbnb did it for me, with no penalty to me as it was beyond my control).
Anyone in Los Angeles have a similar experience? Also any plans on what you will do if you can no longer do Airbnb? (I have a few).
