NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Legal action may be on the table for anyone who throws a party at a Nashville Airbnb.

The company put out a warning ahead of Halloween weekend.

“I’m very happy that they’re warning the guests,” Jessica Tammaro, an Airbnb host said.

In her listings, Tammaro always warns those staying at her properties that parties aren't allowed.

“We have noise aware sensors in our backyards, so we get alerts if the noise gets loud," Tammaro said.

The company told News4 “guests with reservations of 2+ days this weekend have been required to attest that they understand that they may be subject to removal from Airbnb or legal action if they violate Airbnb’s rules on parties.”

“We actually have a three night minimum anyway on weekends at our houses. So, I definitely think encouraging longer stays is going to prevent the parties,” Tammaro said.

News4 also spoke with Metro Council Member Freddie O’Connell.

“My hope is that this advisory really helps people take it seriously,” O’Connell said.

O’Connell represents downtown Nashville and some of the surrounding neighborhoods. The question for him is will the warning be enforced.

“If people didn’t take the advisory seriously and there were incidents of severe irresponsible behavior, was that penalty applied?,” O’Connell said.

For Tammaro, she believes the company will follow through.

“I do think so after last year’s incident on Halloween in California,” Tammaro said.

A shooting happened at a Halloween party in northern California. Five people died and several others were hurt in 2019.

Shortly after that, Airbnb banned “party houses.”
