New York State’s “Anti-AirBnB” Law, Explained

New York State has passed a law that makes some AirBnB home sharing arrangements illegal, but allows others.

Cozy Oasis has created a short video to explain it all for you (click the button below to see it). In the meantime, here’s the short version:

It’s legal to rent a spare room of an apartment to a guest for up to 30 days — but not longer. It’s also legal to rent an entire apartment, but not for a shorter period of time than 30 days.

A law passed October 2016 levies fines of as much as $7,500 on hosts who break these rules. New York City is one of AirBnB’s largest markets.
