Short-Term Illegal Sublets in New York Multifamily Buildings

December 1

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.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to define illegal short-term subletting, distinguishing it from regular subletting or roommate situations.

- You will be able to identify if (and prove that) tenants are engaged in illegal short-term subletting.

- You will be able to recognize a ‘professional' illegal short-term subletting operation and you will be equipped with legal tools to deal with such.

- You will be able to explain to landlords why they should care if illegal short-term subletting is going on in their buildings - including liability for fines and for damages to permanent tenants.
