The rental platform has launched a new policy to limit the damage of the Covid-19 pandemic in American cities

This was made known by the most famous rental platform in the world, with an announcement published two days ago. Airbnb said it intends to take action because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) federal moratorium on residential evictions - which somehow protected people at risk of eviction - will expire at the end of this month.

The moratorium , launched last September, has halved eviction applications but, according to a recent analysis conducted by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, 11 million Americans are overdue with their rent and could be evicted when protection expires. An April census survey found that out of nearly seven million overdue rent respondents, over three million expect to be at risk of being evicted within the next two months.

“Knowing that many cities they are working to prepare for a potential wave of evictions once the moratorium is lifted, ”the platform proposed a solution called Covid-19 Renter Protection Policy. Airbnb will ban new listings for apartments from which tenants have been evicted due to non-payment of rent and where residents have been protected by the CDC moratorium.

This policy will be in effect until the end of year, with the possibility, according to the company, to be renewed. Airbnb also explained that it will try to involve many cities in this project, asking to share information on the leases.

To support renter protection policy, Airbnb will appoint senior policy development manager Andrew Kalloch as responsible for coordinating this initiative. Airbnb has also called on its competitors in the industry to do the same to try to give a systemic response to the potential evictions due to the economic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The practice of evicting long-time tenants, But to make profits with Airbnb is not new, the pandemic has only exacerbated it. For years, renters, particularly low-income, rent-controlled tenants, have complained that landlords illegally evicted them and later offered their rooms at higher prices than the platform.

Gizmodo's doubt on this policy relates to the difficulty Airbnb may have in getting some cities to participate, such as Texas, where a federal judge has declared the moratorium unconstitutional. Airbnb further explained that it will not apply the bans retroactively for previous evictions due to the pandemic.
