HangoutsAdrian Leeds

Jeff Steiner talks with Adrian Leeds of about her petition to amend Paris' short-term rental laws.

Summary

Adrian explains her petition and who it is addressed to, mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo. Adrian feels the present law is unconstitutional because it don't give the right to housing to someone that rents for less than one year. In cities of more than 200,000, rental agreements for second homes must be for one year or longer.

Adrian goes on to say that this issue impacts both tourist renting for a few days or weeks and those looking for a permanent place to live or need temporary housing. In other cities the minimum is one month not one year. Law dates to 1948, but wasn't enforced until 2005 when then Paris mayor Bertrand Delanoë moved enforcement to the mayors office for political reasons. Once this became public people stared to report on neighbors.

Adrian states that the present law as it is enforced does not offer a global perspective and is not enforced reasonably. SPLM (Syndicat des Professionnels de la location Meublée) would like to have the law amended so that a persons could offer their first second home for short term rental.

Adrian ends by stating people can write a letter to the mayor of Paris and that she understands the housing problem in Paris, but feels the issue of rental length should be left in the hands of homeowner associations and not the city. This law applies to other cities in France of over 200,000 but isn't being enforced. Adrian is interested in making this fair for everyone.
