Momentum is building in D.C. to finally take a stand against commercial operators running hotel businesses out of residential apartments. Concerned neighbors and residents whose communities are being disrupted and whose rent prices are skyrocketing are finally being heard.

Earlier this year, Ward 5 Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie introduced a strong piece of legislation that would require Washingtonians who rent homes on Airbnb to be limited to one property and obtain a new short-term rental business license.

This legislation would help to rein in multi-unit commercial operators who have overtaken those taking part in traditional home sharing, robbing neighborhoods of affordable housing in an already expensive market.
