NYC: Ruling makes more AirBnB rentals legal

Jump to last reply

In a well-publicized case last year, a NYC apartment resident was fined and threatened with eviction for violating laws banning short-term rentals of apartments in Class A buildings (the category for most apartment buildings) in the city. Now, another ruling has reversed the fines and clarified that such rentals are legal when the permanent residents don't vacate the apartment.

That covers many AirBnB situations where only a portion of the premises is rented out. In this case, the renter was away and rented out his room, but his co-tenant was at home. For obvious reasons, AirBnB helped with the appeal.

Here's the long (the Forbes link) and the short of it (NY Daily News)
