Short-Term Illegal Sublets in New York Multifamily Buildings

Learn prevention, detection, and remedies to illegal short-term sublets in New York. It seems like everyone is using Airbnb and other platforms to engage in short-term subleasing. The problem is that in many jurisdictions, when tenants in multifamily buildings do so, it is illegal. This creates many problems and liabilities for multifamily landlords. At the most fundamental level, there still seems to be a great deal of confusion surrounding what is and is not allowed. This material explains the law regarding short-term subletting, much of which is illegal, frequently utilizing New York City as an example, and it explains how a landlord can prevent, detect, and remedy these situations. The content is also an excellent resource for tenant lawyers because it educates people about what is and is not legal.
