The current law is so weak that only 800 of the 10,000 San Francisco short-term rentals are registered with the city as required by law. That means over 90% are illegal, but Airbnb and other platforms are still allowed to advertise them – and profit from them.

Today, tenants can convert their in-law and apartment units into an Airbnb hotel without the owner’s approval. Parades of strangers are passing through buildings and neighborhoods and owners can’t protect building safety.

City Hall recently legalized up to 30,000 in-law units across the city to create more affordable housing. But current law allows these units to be converted into Airbnb hotels without need for homeowner’s permission, eliminating affordable housing.

Up to 10,000 homes in San Francisco are now listed as short-term rentals. 70% of them are entire units. This eliminates rent-controlled and affordable housing, driving up rent and causing displacement, including evictions of seniors and the disabled.

Why I support Prop F

  • LIBBY NORONHA & LOUIS DORSEY. WEST PORTAL NEIGHBORS.

    “Our neighborhood is constantly besieged by disruptive and noisy Airbnb strangers. If you care about your neighborhood and peace of mind, vote YES on F.”

  • SPIKE KAHN. AIRBNB HOST.

    “Prop F is fair to legitimate Airbnb hosts, but has the right rules to prevent neighborhoods from becoming tourist hotels. We need to regulate Airbnb to protect our quality of life.”

  • SPIKE KAHN. AIRBNB HOST.

    “Prop F is fair to legitimate Airbnb hosts, but has the right rules to prevent neighborhoods from becoming tourist hotels. We need to regulate Airbnb to protect our quality of life.”

  • TONY & SUNNY LEE. APARTMENT OWNERS

    “Today, an apartment or in-law unit can be converted to an Airbnb short-term rental without the owner’s permission. That makes it impossible to keep tenants safe.”

  • CLAUDIA TIRADO & ALEXANDRE BARRIOS. AN EVICTED TEACHER.

    Our family has been evicted. There are few places to go. Where will teachers like me and our families live when so much affordable housing has been converted into tourist hotels?”

  • MICHAEL ROUPPET. TENANT EVICTED FOR AIRBNB.

    “I was evicted and my former home of 20 years was turned into an Airbnb hotel. No one else should have to experience what I’ve gone through. Please vote Yes on F.”
