I’m yet another landlord to discover one of their single let tenants is Airbnb-ing their flat.
I actually found out from the tenant himself when I requested access for a fire inspection and he responded that he was no longer there and had moved city and was now airbnb-ing the flat to cover the rent.
I have since informed him he can’t do this and he has gone quiet but not before letting me know about the arrival of a long-ish term guest in the coming days.
My query is, am I legally allowed to stop the guest entering the property? I have asked the tenant to cancel all bookings and remove the ad (a request is also in with Airbnb) but so far nothing seems to have happened.
Would I be breaching any tenant rights by blocking access to their (paying) guest?
