Unlikely allies have formed in the ongoing legal battle against short term rental website Airbnb; landlords and tenant advocacy groups find themselves on the same side of the issue. Landlords don't like that Airbnb users profit from their real estate, and tenants are concerned about a constant flow of strangers in their buildings, so both groups are working to stop to the illegal rentals. One building owner representative said, "Airbnb has achieved what everyone thought was impossible. Building owners and tenants now share a common concern." [Crain's; previously]
