I’m subletting our current apartment which I found and rented through airbnb.com. I wonder if any of my friends and family could offer advice about our current situation. The listing on airbnb is under Genevieve (and it has her last name), but I have dealt exclusively with her husband Seth since we have stayed here; he is the renter of this unit. The couple and their baby daughter used to live in this apartment but have moved to Montreal. Genevieve is a flight attendant, and Seth flies for free to Vancouver every few weeks and stops by to pick up the mail when he’s in town. The property manager, James, found out the kids and I are staying here – He saw me unlocking the main door on the 20th and I had called him before that, at Seth’s request, to inquire about the non-working dryer in the basement – and told me that subletting is not permitted. He said he would allow the kids and me to stay here through the 19th as we had planned, but he came by yesterday and gave me a Notice of Lease Termination, effective July 31, for Seth. He said Seth has not responded to the e-mail he sent, and the phone number no longer worked. He also mailed the paperwork to Seth although I don’t know to what address he sent it. It seems if he knew Seth lives in Montreal, that would be a signal the unit is not being occupied by the renter. So James took a couple pictures of the living room and said he’ll call me to schedule times when he can bring prospective tenants to tour the apartment; he said we need to be here for legal liability reasons. I told him we’d be out of town July 11-18; he smiled at my naiveté and said that he would find a tenant before the 11th. I contacted Seth through airbnb e-mail so there would be a written record of all this and told him what James said. Seth called me this morning and said that I am not to let James in the apartment. He said that he (Seth) will be in town Tuesday or Wednesday and will file a lawsuit against James. If James insists on entering, I should call the police. I told him I’m uncertain of my legal requirements, and he said my relationship with him through airbnb means that I am beholden to him, not James. I’m afraid James will kick us out if I don’t allow him access to the apartment. So I contacted airbnb through their website although there is no “Contact Us” page. I really had to search within pages to then find a way to e-mail them. That page said it will take at least 48 hours for them to get back to me. I then saw a phone icon I could click on on that page, so I finally found two phone numbers but they’re only to be used in case of emergency; and I’m not sure if this qualifies or if they have legal staff that would properly advise me. So…what would you do if you were me?
