For individual cases, the property owners are responding to what tenants have said at news.gr, indicating a large number of evictions to give these homes to Airbnb.

PM’s chairman Stratos Paridas, commenting on the tenants’ statements and what was written in the international press, told news.gr the following:
“Funny things. Did they give any evidence from the courts to indicate the number of evictions?
This can happen in individual cases. Under no circumstances is this a fixed practice of the owners, since Airbnb’s activity is not for everyone and not all of the houses are suitable for it. To get a house on this market it needs to be refurbished, furnished, furnished with everything for a stranger who will come and be satisfied.
Individual cases may therefore exist. Those who get into this Airbnb story will soon realize that when they make the bill and pay for those utilities, electricity, water and all these, and they are left home for most days of the year, they will find that they made a very big mistake.
