Copenhagen suggests rental limit to Airbnb

Possible ceiling on how long a property can be rented for
Copenhagen and Airbnb are in talks over placing a ceiling on the number of days a property can be rented via the online service. The meetings come after the Danish capital’s mayor Frank Jensen initially floated the ceiling idea.
He pointed to the example of Amsterdam, which has a limit of 60 days a year on how long a home be rented through Airbnb. A figure of the number of days could be used in Copenhagen’s case has not been revealed.
“We have initiated a dialogue in relation to an agreement,” Ninna Thomsen, deputy mayor for health issues, told the Danish broadcaster DR Nyheder.
She added that the meetings with Airbnb had so far been positive. However, Airbnb says it would like to receive direction from the Danish government before making a deal with the city of Copenhagen.
