NYC Airbnb Regulations

In New York City, you cannot rent out your entire apartment or home to visitors for less than 30 days. You may have up to two paying guests living in your household for fewer than 30 days, if every such guest has free and unobstructed access to every room and to each exit within the apartment, and has the right to use at least one bathroom. Owner must be present during the guests' stay if it is for less than 30 days. No key locks may be installed on any internal door as all occupants in the premises need to maintain a common household. A common household exists when every member of the family (and guest) has access to all parts of the dwelling unit.
