Paris Sues Airbnb for $14 Million for Illegal Adverts

Paris Sues Airbnb for $14 Million for Illegal Adverts
Cities’ standoff with San-Francisco home sharing platform Airbnb is continuing, primarily in the legal field. France’s capital, Paris, is the latest in this list: the city sues Airbnb for 1,000 illegal rental ads it had posted. Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris, said in one of her interviews that the illegal advertisements earned the company $14 million (EUR 12.5 million).

The French law rules that Parisians can rent out their properties for no more than 120 days a year. Each property has a registration number, which must be included in the rental ad. This way, authorities track the number of days the property was rented out. Additionally, France approved the act, which further fines illegal advertising with EUR 12,500. Hidalgo said this latest provision would be used by the city in court. She also added that the goal of a court hearing would be to stop illegal rentals, which negatively affected many neighborhoods in Paris.

Airbnb’s spokesperson said in a statement that it had put new procedures in place to ensure that Parisians fully comply with the nation’s laws. For Airbnb, France is the second-biggest market, only giving way to the U.S. Cities across the world share similar concerns with regards to Airbnb, which threatens to turn some areas into tourists-only neighborhoods.
