New York’s Hotel Law and New Statutes Prohibiting Advertising of Short-Term Occupancy

By Jared E. Paioff, Esq.

In 2011, the New York State Legislature amended the Multiple Dwelling Law (“MDL”) to expressly prohibit owners/lessees of apartments in permanent residential buildings, which include rental buildings, condominiums, and coops containing four or more units, from renting their apartments on a short-term basis, i.e., for less than 30 consecutive days.




End Of The Road For
Pro Se Serial Litigant

After being the victim of more than twenty frivolous lawsuits, all of which were either dismissed, discontinued, or abandoned, Meyer Muschel can finally breathe a sigh of relief (no pun intended) after the Honorable Kelly O’Neill Levy issued an order permanently enjoining pro se serial litigant, Roland Davis, from commencing any actions or proceedings against Mr. Muschel concerning the property in which Mr. Davis lives and which, until recently, Mr. Muschel owned/managed.
