On Friday afternoon, New York state Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill making it illegal to advertise your home for short-term rent on websites like Airbnb.
The law specifically targets New York City homeowners in apartment buildings who advertise their properties, or even just a spare room in their homes, to rent for less than 30 days at a time.
It’s important to note that New York already passed a law a few years ago making it illegal to rent your home out to short-term tenants.
This new law makes it illegal to ADVERTISE… which is basically pre-crime.
