Problems with Airbnb-style lettings

On 6 June 2018 Simon Wood, a barrister in the Hart Brown Dispute Resolution department, presented a paper at the RICS Regional Conference for the South East.

We posted the first part of his paper on 26 June. We are delighted to provide the second part which deals with the subject of ‘Problems with Airbnb-style Lettings’.

Simon would draw readers’ attention to the very recent case of Bermondsey Exchange Freeholders Limited and Conway (May 2018) Central London County Court, where the court set out useful guidelines as to how such lettings will be treated by the courts, particularly where the lessor seeks injunctive relief.

A full copy of his paper is available here.
