Same issue here. We are renting just one property as a family, so me, my wife and my two sons are hosts. One of my sons created the listing, so he is the listing admin, while the rest of us are co-hosts, and I am the "primary" host.
No problems sofar - except that I'm unable to see anything about the state and progress of our rental (the URL https://www.airbnb.com/progress/ returns no information: no reviews, no earnings, ...).
All we need is for a way for my son to hand over admin rights to me so I can monitor progress.
Alternatively, make it possible for any co-host (or just the "primary" co-host) to view the progress.
I'm just facing the same isssue. In short, I want to change the admin for over 30 listings. I also want to avoid the annoying work of delisting, calendar blocking, losing over 4000 reviews etc.
Like someone stated before, there is only one easy solution right now. Changing the Email, Name, Payout, verified ID. These options are viable to change and I don't see a problem with that. The original Admin ID stays the same, just different variables.
So if you have access to the Admin Account of the listing, you can just take over this Account. Why would Airbnb leave these options open to change if they don't want too? As it seems, only the birthday is blocked to change.
PS: To be save I will contact Airbnb regarding this matter. What if the Admin dies, legally uncapable of continuing?
The question we all should ask: Is it possible (legally permitted) to take over the Admin ID ?!
HI All - I'm relatively new to airbnb hosting but this issue just came up with me. I am really hoping to become the listing admin for the house that I own. The current listing admin has asked to transfer roles and we do not want to look the current bookings and past reviews - this should be possible! Plus, I need the payout information to pay the taxes, etc. and cannot see it as a co-host. Please AirBnB help!
More than 3 years and the problem still exists. That too bad for such a great company. It has to be fixed! You can grey out the reviews or just do something and a new admin can take over. There so many people asking this and I think it's Vital!
Impossible to believe they not aware of this problem and yet don't do anything about it when it would be so easily done.
What is this company ?
This is simply silly but also create a very difficult legal position. My cohost (primary) reviews travelers but her (written) review shows up under my name and are forever associated with me, without me having even read it.
Surely a property should belong to the admin, but the host involved in the booking should do (and be named in) the review?
i also don’t want my cohost to own the listing as should I ever want to change it, I will lose the listing.
AirB&B pls think through this. Properties should belong to an admin, admins should be able to move a property to another admin.
Reviews should be done in the primary host’s name.
Reviews should be split between the property and the host and attached to each.
