My landlord sent me an eviction notice while my apartment was being rented on Airbnb but Airbnb provided zero support. I was in Africa at the time and could do nothing. It took me three days to get hold of an Airbnb representative who then said there was nothing they could do to help me. They could not even give me advice on how to proceed. They could not even recommend a lawyer. Nothing. Airbnb were very supportive in getting my apartment rented. They even sent a photographer to take photos of it for free. I really had no idea they were encouraging me to do something illegal and that it would cost me my home. Why would I do something illegal on a website that everyone can see? If I buy something from Amazon I don’t first check to see if it is illegal. I thought Airbnb was similarly a reputable company. But I was naive. Airbnb is pure evil.
I’m not a Guest. I’m not a Host. I’m a LANDLORD. And yesterday I received a call from one tenant at a duplex that the other tenants suddenly have a lot of guests in the past month. And the latest guest has been there all week while the tenants are GONE! Turns out that couple has been subleting out my property thru Airbnb. Their 31 reviews in the six weeks average almost 5 starts because the property is so nice! The couple is now being evicted and I pity those who have booked thru September because Airbnb doesn’t think they should refund you. LOL The story is way complicated but pay attention -AIRBNB DOES NO CHECKING ON HOSTS OR GUESTS SO IF YOU ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO USE THEM YOU GET WHAT YOU DESERVE.
