AirBnB Host Sued Over Penthouse Party Thrown by Renter

AirBnB, a company where homeowners and tenants (in some cases) can rent out a bedroom or their entire home to people visiting their town. Essentially, it’s a hotel service without the lobby and check-in desk.

A recent AirBnB host in Brixton, London has recently been taken to court over a penthouse party that was thrown by one of his renters.

Residents around the penthouse were not keen about the noise and number of guests entering their residential area, resulting in safety concerns.

“Property lawyers told the newspaper that AirBnB legal cases will become increasingly common, especially surrounding those who rent out property in a block of flats.” According to News Paper 6

Innovative companies like AirBnB are still new to the “hotel” and “traveling” industry and will only increase.

Since AirBnB’s existence in 2008, this style of booking travel accommodations has only become more popular over the years.

It might be time to add specific policies such as “no partying” in the terms and conditions.
