This is an arrangement that is happening in evr more cities now...hosts have to register with the city, in order to list on Airbnb. it remains to be seen if Paris will try to get Airbnb to police listings and remove those where the host isn't registered -- as is happening in a few cities. Such as San Francisco.
Paris authorities will make it mandatory for all landlords renting their homes through Airbnb Inc. and other online platforms to register before offering lodging, as the city seeks to increase control and crack down on those who unlawfully rent, Le Figaro reported.
The measure is meant to curb a housing shortage in the city, the newspaper said, citing the mayor’s housing adviser. Owners will need a registration number to make their homes available to tourists, the newspaper said. The mayor’s office will open the registration website on Oct. 2 and owners will have two months to comply.
