Amsterdam seems to be all geared to repair the holiday rental rules quickly with the help of a permit. This seems to be the result of the decisions taken by the Council of State in late January. It was stated that the holiday rentals like on Airbnb can be regulated only with a permit.
In recent years, the rental of rooms by tourists and residents has grown to a great extent. And, for this reason, the municipality has come up with a slew of conditions regarding this. Until now, the holiday renters who meet these conditions do not have to apply for a permit. Recently, the Council of State ruled this practice as contrary to the Housing Act.
