Property agents charged with leasing homes via Airbnb
« on: December 05, 2017, 09:14:27 pm »
SINGAPORE — For the first time since laws were passed to address short-term rentals via popular websites such as Airbnb, two men  were hauled to court on Tuesday (Dec 5) to be charged for illegally  leasing housing units for short stays.

Property agents Yao Songliang, 34, and Terence Tan En Wei, 35, each faced four charges under the Planning Act, which forbids the  rental of apartments and rooms for a short term.

Some time around May 15, the duo, who have been with  property firm Savills Residential since January last year, allegedly worked together to lease four different apartments for a period under  six months through Airbnb.
