Are you or Your Neighbor Breaking

The Law?

In June 2016, the NYS Legislature passed new legislation — A.8704-C/S.6340-A — to strengthen existing prohibitions in the Multiple Dwelling Law against illegal short-term rentals that are significantly contributing to New York City’s affordable housing crisis, and driving up rents in communities across the city. If you violate it, you could face fines upwards of $7,500 and eviction.
