The use of short-term occupation sites such as Airbnb and Booking.com has, at least until the Coronavirus lockdown, been on the rise and this has almost inevitably “spilled over” into the use by some of their (social) housing.

The Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) had recent cause to look at this question in Triplerose Ltd v Beattie & Beattie [2020] UKUT 180 (LC).

Is this a breach of tenancy? Does it constitute sub-letting? Or parting with possession? Does it constitute using the demised premises for business purposes?

Andy Lane considers these and other related issues in the latest in Cornerstone Barristers’ housing webinar programme.
