Landlord Fined $48,000 for Tenants' Illegal Short-Term Rentals
LVT Number: #26148
DOB issued violation notices to landlord for using three residential apartments in a building for transient occupancy. At a hearing, DOB's inspector testified that he gained access to the apartments and spoke with the short-term occupants, who told him that they had booked one-week reservations through online services. None of the prime tenants stayed in the apartments with the guests. The building super gave them the keys when they arrived. Landlord claimed that it was unaware that tenants had illegally arranged the short-term rentals.
