Airbnb Loopholes

San Francisco's Airbnb law, which went into effect February 1, is not workable, according to the Planning Department. In a memo to the Board of Supervisors, Planning cited the core problem: Sites like Airbnb aren't required to share information with the city on who's hosting, meaning that there's no way to find or to bring illegally advertised short-term rentals into compliance. Planning also said it needs a way to pay for the cost of administering the law, and said the two-year, $50 registration fee falls short. [SF Chronicle]
