More Legal Hot Water for Airbnb |

“New York State attorney general Eric Schneiderman Monday filed an affidavit with the state Supreme Court in Albany claiming that the majority of Airbnb listings in New York are illegal.”

The issue is that renting accommodation for less than 30 days is in general illegal in New York for those renters who are not continually residing in their apartment. For Airbnb, 64% of its nearly 20,000 in New York are an “entire apartment,” not a shared space, as the law would seem to mandate.
