Often times we find that people can be confused by the concept of BNB Shield. We often hear, "wait, you need a permit to list your place?" or "What do you mean? I had no idea that homeowners may not be able to rent there place!" and the most popular, "OH. I HAVE PROBABLY STAYED IN AN ILLEGAL AIRBNB." That last one is usually said in an all-caps pitch.
We believe that a huge issue around short-term rentals is a lack of knowledge. An informed consumer will rent a home that is permitted and legal. A knowledgeable and considerate host will have all permits and inspections in place. And when property managers understand the issues and the tools available, well, they can better handle the issue at hand.
