Hard to believe another year is almost over. Does anyone even remember what was going on, say, in February? Neither do we though we’re pretty sure we were probably already talking about making preparations for the coming warner temperatures, etc. Same things we bring up annually because, well, preventative maintenance!! Rest assured, we’ll be talking about it again in 2018.
So now the holiday season is upon us—you’re either traveling or hosting right? In comes the Airbnb concept. Many people love it and if you’re the owner of the property, it may be a viable strategy in any number of situations. However, if you are currently leasing the property you reside in and—without the express written consent of the owner and/or property manager—list the property on Airbnb and “book” guests (and/or take payment), you are subleasing. Check your lease first—it may prohibit subleasing, again unless you have procured express written consent from the owner and/or property manager.
Then there are the possible legal and insurance implications…more to come on that.
