      hey everyone, just curious how everyone is dealing with AIRBNB’s. they are starting to be come popular in our area and just curious how everyone is dealing with them. we dont have any type of registry, so how is everyone keeping track of them and are you putting them on an inspection schedule? TIA

      For me, I’ve got bigger fish to fry and as such AirBnB (and any other similar) aren’t even a blip on my radar. Our scope on them isn’t any different than any other comparable dwelling. The only difference I’ve found would be the application of, particularly Sentence (2) The landlord shall text smoke alarms annually and after every change in tenancyEach separate rental booking would constitute a change in tenancy.

      Inspection schedule? Huh? What are those? Lol.  I can’t even keep up with complaints and requests due to property sale…

      Hello Nicholas,

      We do not track AIRBNB’s in North Bay. Our office would treat them as if they were a single family dwelling or a dwelling within a multi residential building. I don’t think tracking them in North Bay would serve any major benefit because we have not had any fires here relating to AIRBNB’s. Obvious there are benefits but resources would be better reverted to high priority areas/concerns.

      Hopefully this helps,

      Joe Gardiner
