What is Air B and B doing to the world we live in?

I understand why it was created and how it works, but it can cause neighbours of such ‘mostly illegal ” activities in leasehold premises, great inconvenience. Not only is it disconcerting to have regular changes of people next door, many of whom have no respect for the environment they are living in, but add to that the security hazard that renting out in this manner causes. It is the case that most owners of leasehold flats do not seek prior consent from the superior landlord or the freeholder, as they know that such consent would not be granted. This is because an underlet is usually subject to a minimum of 6 months so as to comply with assured shorthold letting laws and shorter lets are almost always refused under the terms of the lease In this world of terrorism and violence we should do everything possible to counter the possibility of air B and B lets being used by the wrong people for the wrong purposes Creating a website and letting your property out contrary to the rules in your lease can be considered as a fatal breach of the leaseholder’s lease and entitle the landlord to terminate the lease Avoid problems and don’t do it. Lease your flat out for 6 months or more with the landlord’s consent.
