6,000 Illegal Air B&B Rentals in Amsterdam

Amsterdam does not permit renting one’s home out for more than 60 days per year. A new study shows that at least 6,000 illegal Air B&B rentals of homes and rooms to tourists do not comply with the towns rules.  The Amsterdam Housing alderman Laurens Ivens said:  “I want to prevent our homes being hijacked and people making a lot of money from it.”  The Amsterdam municipality is implementing the obligatory listing of renting of homes out to tourists. From 2018, if people do not comply, they will be fined up to 6000 Euros.
