Airbnb: Parl’t Puts Regulation Of Private Accommodations Into Local Council Hands
The Hungarian parliament amended the regulation on private accommodation, allowing local governments to limit the number of days they may be leased for in a calendar year.

The amendment defines as “private accommodation” homes which are owned by private persons or sole proprietors, have no more than eight rooms and 16 beds, and are not used exclusively as rented accommodation.

Local councils are required to inform the National Tourism Data Service Centre on the limits set on private accommodations.

Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony last Thursday welcomed that the government had consulted the municipal council on the measure, and that local governments would have more autonomy in regulating private accommodations.
