Labour MP Tulip Siddiq calls for new AirBNB rules
24 March, 2017 — By Geoffrey Sawyer
LABOUR’s Tulip Siddiq is among MPs demanding new measures to control the way property owners use websites such as Airbnb to cash in on their homes. The Hampstead and Kilburn wants homeowners to be required to notify the council when they are letting their homes on a short-term basis. Calls for action have followed fears that landlords see Airbnb as more profitable than bringing in long-term stable tenants – depleting the number of homes available to rent in London.
