Glasgow City Council recently banned a landlord from renting out a flat as a short term let on Airbnb.
This follows new regulations introduced by Glasgow Council in March 2017 that bans landlords renting out an entire flat for short-term lets, including Airbnb, in a property with a communal entrance. An individual room can still be rented out if the owner remains living in the property or if the property has its own entrance.
The recent ban followed complaints from other residents of the building who were unhappy about the constant stream of visitors entering the building. The council upheld their complaint and issued an enforcement notice banning the landlord from renting out the property. The ban was then upheld following the landlord’s unsuccessful appeal against the Council in a recent court ruling.
If you want advice on letting out your property on a longer term basis, we would be happy to advise.
