DOB issued three violation notices to landlord for: (a) occupancy in a manner contrary to that allowed by DOB records; (b) failure to install a fire alarm system; and (c) failure to maintain a building in a safe and code-compliant manner. DOB's inspector testified that rooms on the second and third floor of the building each were occupied by guests for less than 30 days without a host. The guests stated that they booked rooms through Airbnb. The violations resulted from failure to comply with rules applicable to transient use occupancy.
