What Oregon landlords and tenants should know about the new AirBnB rules
Now that Portland, Oregon’s city council has formally legalized short-term rentals in single-family homes, social networking sites such as AirBnB (Air Bed and Breakfast) are bringing up new concerns for these types of short-term rental services. There are not yet legal definitions for Salem, Oregon at present but they are being discussed. The city of Salem, Oregon has already expressed strict control limits on the social sharing economy business called Uber; what they decide to do with business models such as AirBnB remains to be heard.
AirBnb and services like it are linking up short-term renters with places to stay all over the globe. Some of the renters are looking for just a room, others are looking to rent an entire home, condo or rental unit; and it’s opening up some cans of worms because this is new, uncharted territory. The city of Bend is already tackling these issues with a newly developed task force. If you’d like to read about one landlord’s nightmare dealing with this see this news story here.
