Some hosts set the security deposit on their accommodations, and if you break something while staying there, the host has the right to ask for the reparation, and if both sides fail to reach an agreement, Airbnb steps in to decide the amount of reparation.
However, what about the case the host doesn't set the security deposit? Is the guest still obligated to make reparation?
The Airbnb page only states the case where the host sets the security deposit.
What do I do if my guest breaks something in my place?
If you need to make a claim on your security deposit, you can do so in the Resolution Center within 14 days of your guest’s checkout date or before the next guest checks in, whichever is earlier.
