Wow. Just wow. This is heart-wrenching story of something which never ought to have happened. A family member of mine rents rooms of a house out on AirBnB, and I’ll bet, has never heard any of this. I’ll bet the “responsibilities of being a landlord” are the furthest thing from front-of-mind when accepting guests, and I’ll bet the guests themselves don’t exercise much caution in the residence either. As a cautionary tale, this certainly puts the brakes onto jumping head-first and carefree into the offerings of newer, more distributed economy entities based upon Internet-driven technology triggers.
