    Not sitting by idly while AirBnB pushes municipalities to pass ordinances that favor the AirBnB model, HomeAway sues San Francisco over ordinance that favors AirBnB while cutting out traditional short term rentals.

    I'd like to thank Wright Noel, attorney at law, for writing his opinion on the Chiwawa River Pines Washington Supreme Court Ruling!  Wright Noel is best known in our community for successfully representing vacation rental owners in the case Ross V. Bennett concerning vacation rental use in the community of Cattle Point on San Juan Island in 2008.   You don't want to miss reading this one.  It may mean more than you know.

    Strongly influenced by AirBnB, Portland city council proposes a new Short Term Rental Regulation that would permit homeowners to rent out 1-2 bedrooms in their home to short term guests.  The caveat is that the owner must live in the property!  Currently short term rentals are not allowed in residential zones in Portland.  This loosens those regulations but only for the AirBnB model of renting portions of a home, not whole units.
