Can being an Airbnb host get you kicked out of a rent-controlled apartment? Yep.

A California appellate court ruled today that a rent-controlled tenant engaging in Airbnb short-term rentals violated terms of a lease that required compliance with all laws, and thus the tenant could be evicted, where such short-term rentals were illegal in the tenant's Los Angeles zoning district.  The case, Chen v. Kraft, is available here.

Hat tip to Robert H. Thomas, who alerted me to the case.
