Landlords will need planning permission to use Airbnb under new letting rules
The Government is to tighten the rules around allowing properties in areas of high housing demand to be used for short-term lets – such as Airbnbs.Owners of buy-to-let properties will have to get planning permission from local councils if they want to use their second homes or apartments for short-term lets, such as Airbnbs, for more than three months every year.Councils will have the power to refuse permission to owners of such properties to use them for full-time, short-term lettings.
