Toronto Landlord leased her condo to someone she had never met. Before she realized the tenant and her boy friend started leasing the condo on Airbnb without her knowledge and consent. The City of Toronto issued the boyfriend an Airbnb short term rental license to operate.
The owner discovered when condo neighbours complained. Now she has sued the City of Toronto and Airbnb for $1.6M for facilitating Airbnb business for a condo the client didn’t own or lease.
