Landlord Fined for Short-Term Rental for Nine Guests in Two-Family House
LVT Number: #30851
DOB issued four violation notices to landlord for booking short-term rentals through Airbnb for the first floor of a two-family house for nine guests. At a hearing, landlord argued that the DOB inspector's conversation with a guest through an open window was insufficient to establish the charges.
The ALJ ruled for landlord in part. One violation was dismissed because the prohibition against short-term rentals contained in the MDL didn't apply to two-family dwellings.
