The firm and a west London authority will target occupants of social housing who illegally sublease their properties via Airbnb.

According to the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC), some residents rent out their homes to visitors on Airbnb.

The information about payments that was gathered by the website for holiday rentals will be sent to the relevant authorities in order to be used in any required prosecutions.

In the event that their plan to fight housing fraud is successful, RBKC asserts that it may be replicated by other authorities in London.

According to Local Democracy Reporting Service, the proposed agreement between Airbnb and RBKC would see two estates in North Kensington serve as test locations for the service.

The council, which has a waiting list of 3,000 families, hopes the idea would lead to more accessible homes for the needy.

In order to access the information of Airbnb users, RBKC was required to get a court order in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations.
