Legal Notice & FAQ

Is it legal?

In 2015 the government reformed legislation on private room rental, implementing new rules that allow homeowners in the UK to rent out a room for up to 90 days a year without the need for planning permission. For hosts who plan to sublet their property, you must ensure there are no clauses against subletting in your rental agreement.

What insurance do I have against vandals?

At present, hosts in Britain and 28 other countries are covered by a £600,000 “host guarantee”, backed by Lloyd’s of London, but this does not cover everything and Airbnb recommends that hosts obtain appropriate home insurance on top of this.
