Landlord's Employee Fined $10K for Advertising Short-Term Rentals on Airbnb
LVT Number: #28531
The Mayor's Office of Special Enforcement (OSE) issued 10 violation notices to landlord's employee for unlawfully advertising apartments of three Lower East Side buildings for short-term rentals of less than 30 days, in violation of Multiple Dwelling Law Section 4(8)(a). At a hearing, the OSE inspector testified that he saw the employee leave one of the buildings, and on other visits people occupying units told him that they booked the apartments through Airbnb and showed him booking confirmations. The inspector also found advertisements for apartments on Airbnb's website.
