People in Paris who rent properties on Airbnb must now register their property with the cities town hall. This news was very good news for the hotel owners in the city who faced competition from Airbnb. Airbnb has been seeing a worldwide crackdown from legislators largely in part by hotel lobbyists who have view the rental service as unfair competition. Starting from December 1, the city is making it mandatory to register the property before advertising on Airbnb’s website. This makes it harder for property owners exceed the cities 120 days a year rental limit while making it easier for authorities to monitor rental conditions.
