Up until now, a Londoners haven’t been able to rent their homes on a short-term basis without the fear of being fined. Now, the law will be updated to allow homeowners in the capital to use sites like Airbnb to rent their houses, apartments, or spare rooms for up to three months a year. To celebrate the new law, Airbnb has set sail on the Thames, in a fully functional two-bedroom house. The house, which is bigger than many Londoner’s land-locked residences, also includes a bathroom, living room, and a garden complete with doghouse and an apple tree. For those who’d like to be welcomed aboard, the housing rental company is running a competition for a one-night stay on May 22, 2015 . Entries are due by May 20. + Enter to win a night in the floating house!
