How do we hold platforms accountable? We hear this question a lot. How can we make sure they do what they say they will?
San Francisco is trying to do it. Last week the Board of Supervisors passed new rules that make short-term rental platforms responsible for enforcing the city’s laws.
As expected, the platforms are looking for ways around the new laws. Without holding the platforms accountable, no new ordinance will be effective. We are doing everything we can to make sure that LA gets it right.
