If you want to stop vacation rentals, we will be happy to help you find the listings and their origin. We are a monitor service and we scan all the big vacation rental web portals for vacation rental listings on your address.
You do! You can stop vacation rentals if you do not want strangers in your elevators and in your pool. You decide if people on vacation should be allowed to disturb your day to day life with your family. It is entirely up to you, your Board of Directors and your Condo Docs. And NOT up to Airbnb or any other business.
The short answer is: Absolutely NO. Airbnb's automated answer is that they are merely a marked place and do not get into disputes between hosts and buildings. Very convenient for them and extremely frustrating for you. Unless you hire a lawyer and have the time for endless hours of arguing, there is nothing Airbnb will do to protect you. You need to monitor the web pages if you want to stop vacation rentals.
Your building's rules are untouchable. So, since you do not get support from the authorities or from Airbnb, you should enforce your own rules sternly. Make sure that your residents abide and respect that Airbnb is NOT welcome, ans stop vacation rentals.
The hardest and most time consuming part, is staying informed. That's where STR Monitor™ can help. Only if you are informed, you can act. Our service monitors all the big vacation rental websites efficiently and fast.
It is important that nobody can hide behind the good old "oh, I didn't know"-excuse. Inform and display that vacation rentals are not allowed in your building. Then fine the residents that still do not respect the rules.
