Paris defends itself against Airbnb before the court of justice of the European Union

Chance of the calendar. A day after the announcement of the partnership between the Olympic Committee and Airbnb for five Olympiads, including the Olympics in Paris in 2024, Ian Brossat is Tuesday in front of the court of justice of the European Union in Luxembourg. The Deputy (PCF) housing Anne Hidalgo (PS) defends the policy of the capital facing the giant furnished tourist after the complaint of a resident of the seventh arrondissement. The latter was sentenced twice for renting his home on this type of platform without complying with Parisian regulations (120 nights maximum per year and registration required) and therefore brought the case before the highest European court. .

A decision next summer

"This morning, the Czech Republic, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and Ireland came to testify to support our desire for regulation and the establishment of a device to change the uses", attack Ian Brossat. If the Advocate General will not make his findings until February 2020 and the judgment should not be made before next summer, the elected representative has put forward his arguments.

"We can not accept that our housing difficulties are increasing due to the development of Airbnb," says Brossat. In Paris, 30,000 homes have been transformed into tourist furniture at the expense of Parisians. It is necessary to regulate this activity because otherwise the owners will systematically put them on these platforms, because it is two to three times more profitable than a conventional rental. "
