If you had thought using AirBNB to rent out your property between tenants was a good idea, think again.

    Well... Duh... any rental has risks. Honestly, do people really think they don't? You can't control what others do in your property. All you can do is your due diligence, reference checks, reference checks, reference checks. Even those aren't foolproof as a landlord can lie if they want someone out bad enough. I have no idea how this company operates but in terms of the rental business, particularly in BC where landlords have little rights or recourse against tenants, shit happens... chalk it up to a price of doing business, but again, due diligence in the beginning will give you more chance of a successful rental, not foolproof however, by any means. As far as short term vacation tenants go, keep in mind that for the most part, theses tenants are "on vacation" and that means they plan on having a good time. Not usually a hundred people in your house good time, but a vay-kay is a vay-kay and there can be problems when its happening in a private residence.
