Just saw this on TA. Which are legal and which aren't?
You've linked to a list of 99 properties! Do you really expect someone to go through and report back on each one?
IrishFan is right, it is so long to read properly.
Too long. Can't process.
I don't expect anything. I was being ironic. Sorry I wasn't clear at all.
My assumption is that nearly None of them are legal and Most or all of them should be avoided.
Why does TA continue to advertise illegal lodging choices? Do properties pay TA fees to appear on this travel site?
Some I believe are legal. i have less of a problem with these B & b's that have websites, reviews and no permenent residents other than perhaps the owners of the building , than I do with the individual apartments in regular buildings that should be regular rentals and get rented to vacationers illegally.
TA advertises illegal properties because, as it is located outside New York City, the company has no responsibility to obey NYC law and does not want to take on the legal or financial responsibility of verifying that each property obeys NYC law.
I see. Maybe TA shouldn't advertise any apartments at all then.
of course not
TripAdvisor would say, there are tens of thousands of cities in the world where apartment rental is perfectly legal and a handful where it isn't. Why punish the greater number just because a few cities have an annoying law we dislike and lobbied against?
At least that's what they'd say.
Perfectly acceptable to advertise vacation apts. in cities where vacation rentals are allowed. Buyer beware in that case. However, It isn't OK to advertise short term vacation rentals in cities where the law prohibits them.
