Petition of Pablo Birocchi: Long-term rentals not to be able to do Airbnb

Published date: 15 Apr 2020

Petition request

That the House of Representatives pass legislation to prevent properties from being used as both a long-term rental and as an Airbnb.

Petition reason

I believe the rental market is absolutely crazy and that because of the COVID-19 shutdown many houses have become available, which has meant that the price has already dropped for rentals. I think that if house owners have to choose between having an Airbnb or a rental there would not be a shortage. They should only be able to do one or the other for a long period of time.
