Airbnb, HomeAway settle rental-registration lawsuit against San Francisco

It will take 8 months of roll-out, but AirBnb and HomeAway will give San Francisco access to their database, in order to check whether litings comply with local rules by being registered with  the city.
In Frisco’s case, having landlord renting out to travellers, does reduce the range of options for locals looking for new accomoation.

In case of breach, both ocmpanies will be notified by the city and compelled to delist a given accomodation.
