Woman evicted for breaking rules at B.C. Airbnb sues — and loses
Faegheh Soleymany Moayed wanted a relaxing getaway with her siblings.
What she got was an eviction order, a visit from police, and a legal fight with the owner of the Airbnb property.
So Moayed filed a claim in B.C.’s civil resolution tribunal, demanding the owner refund the $417 she paid for a two-night stay, after the owner sent her guests home early. She also asked the tribunal to award her gas expenses of $200 and $1,000 for “pain and suffering.”
But owner Rachel Choquette told the tribunal Moayed had breached Airbnb’s booking policy and rules.
Choquette said when Moayed booked the two-night stay, she told Choquette she was staying there with her brother and sister, but Choquette said that was not the case and so the booking violated Airbnb rules.
