Room with a sue: Airbnb strata battles showing up in court

In one case, a condo owner argued he wasn't renting his bedroom out — he was licensing its use.

A photograph of about 15 pairs of men's shoes lined up outside a doorway was entered into evidence in another — proof the townhouse owner in question had used her unit as a kind of hostel.

A case last September involved a North Vancouver woman who rented her three-bedroom, five-level townhouse as a hostel housing "a changing group of 10 to 20 strangers per night." According to the decision, the City demanded Emily Yu cease and desist after several inspections — including one noting the presence of vending machines.
