The popularity of new types of home-based (peerto-peer) accommodation has grown in recent years as a result of the increase in electronic channels via which such accommodation can be arranged. Even though you may only be providing home-based accommodation on an irregular basis, as an accommodation provider you should be aware of the legislation on the subject. In these guidelines, home-based accommodation refers to the provision of temporary accommodation (such as a bed, room or apartment) by a private individual in his or her home on an irregular basis in return for payment. For example, a private individual may offer guest accommodation at home in connection with a summer event. These guidelines have been drawn up jointly by the authorities.
