Sharing for a Stronger New York

Bill A.7520/S.7182 is designed to legalize unhosted short term rentals in “Class A Multiple Dwellings” in New York City and provide mechanisms for tax collection on short term rentals throughout the state. It also includes several tools to protect the permanent housing market and enhance public safety.

One Host, One Home Hosts can’t have more than one entire home listing in NYC. We’ve voluntarily removed 4,800+ listings since November 2015.

Simple, Mandatory Registration This bill allows short-term rental hosts to share only one entire home listing in NYC. Airbnb has voluntarily removed 4,800+ listings since November 2015.

Protect Affordable Housing in NYC This bill will ban short-term rentals in public housing (NYCHA) and limits STR in rent stabilized housing to prevent profiteering.

Good Neighbor Rules Airbnb screens all guests and hosts, provides $1 million in Host Protection Insurance, and has a 24/7 neighbor hotline. This bill will require all hosts to carry insurance and would establish a 3-Strikes rule that would remove bad actors after 3 rule violations.

Collect & Remit Occupancy Taxes This bill will authorize online platforms to collect and remit occupancy taxes from guests on the behalf of hosts. Allowing this to happen could generate an estimated $100 million from Airbnb in the first year alone.
