In one Austin neighborhood, resident Robert Reeves has spent years calling in complaints against two rental houses that sit across a cul-de-sac from him: a 1917 residence that is licensed for rentals and a 1923 one that is not. Reeves orchestrated a sting operation against the 1923 home two years ago, but he says it still brings cars and noise to the neighborhood. He’s sicced code enforcement officers on the 1917 house, saying it routinely exceeds the strict capacity limits City Council members passed earlier this year.
Now he’s suing both of his neighbors, claiming they are both violating Austin’s short-term rental rules and ruining the neighborhood’s quality of life.
