Beijing’s homestay industry is suffering a disaster, the authorities suddenly issued a notice, all online rental platforms display houses, immediately all off the shelves. The notice from the Beijing Municipal Commission of Housing and Urban-rural Development said that citywide housing supply is temporarily banned. An estimated 100,000 property owners are affected.

Beijing’s privately run b&Bs are facing the toughest crackdown in history, and many are wondering what the sudden administrative order is all about. According to Chinese media reports, recently, the Beijing tongzhou district organization urban network, public security letter (ledge, population, security), building departments, jointly held a short specification rental housing management will work deployment, facing the road home, Abby to meet, where to go, short rent, the pig with Cheng Yilong, ctrip, Meituan, wooden birds, flying pigs nine short rent housing platform for policy propaganda, Non-compliant listings will be removed from the shelves from August 29.
Guo Li, a Beijing resident, said in an interview on Tuesday that if the policy had been implemented, it would have made people’s lives extremely inconvenient.

“That means fully controlling the accommodation of tourists and those willing to come to Beijing to stay in b&Bs at a low cost. Manage the movements of these people. What exactly are they doing in Beijing? This is a tightening of the private housing system.
At present, Beijing’s home stay centers in Yanqing, Changping and other places, the number of at least 100,000 units. Beijing resident Ye Jinghuan was puzzled by the authorities’ move and speculated on a number of possibilities:

“In some cases, the whole village has been converted into a b&B, especially in Yanqing, which is developing tourism for the Beijing Olympic Games. If these b&Bs are shut down, the villagers will not collectively rebel.”

According to people familiar with the matter, a business manager of the platform said that if a Beijing homestay is to go online, it must upload a certificate of property ownership; Owner’s identity certificate; Operator’s identity certificate; Written materials of the owner of the leased house agreeing to use the house for short-term lease operation; The management regulations of the residential area or the owners committee, property management committee and other 6 certification materials.

Liu Kun, an independent scholar in Beijing, said the regulation would “devastate” hundreds of thousands of Beijing home stay operators. He said:
“Some of the six certificates required by the authorities are very difficult to obtain, such as the consent of the owners’ committee, the consent of the property management committee, the consent of other owners of the same building and the security conclusion guarantee signed with the police station. From this, the vast majority of homestay will be difficult to continue to operate. It can be said that Beijing’s home-stay industry has been wiped out.”
