There’s been a lot of discussion about Airbnb and its effect on Sweden’s extremely complex housing market but for now at least, it’s completely legal for tourists to rent a property through Airbnb.
However, the idea of renting out a property for profit clashes with traditional Swedish attitudes and some housing companies are reluctant to see large numbers of short-term guests coming and going. In one landmark case, a Swedish woman in Stockholm was banned from renting out her property through the website.
Our advice is simple: do your research first to make sure that the property you’re staying in is safe, and that the host is reliable, but don’t worry too much – the chances of you being turfed out of a property because of a legal challenge to Airbnb are very small indeed.
