Statten Island Condo RentalsMar 20, 2013

I am currently an executive board member of a condo association of a building located in Staten Island,NY. There are only 16 units in our building. Can anyone advise what the current law is concerning condo rentals. Can an owner of a condo apt. rent for 3 months. Is there a law that protects the association. We have been told by our manager than owner of an condo has the right to rent their apt. as often as they want to.This seems to include short term rentals. We are not happy about this because its a fairly well kept new building. Can anyone recommend a good condo lawyer. The bylaws were written by the sponsor of the building and filed. Thank you.

Hi Linda. I understand your concerns. The only municipal law or regulation I am aware of is a recently enacted law in NYC regarding rentals of less than 30 days. I don't know if it applies to condominiums or cooperatives, though.

The first place you should look is your condo's operating documents. There might be restrictions in those documents you can enforce. Also ask your condo's attorney. She/he should be able to answer any concerns you have. Condos are more like private property than co-ops, so your options may be more limited. Your organization's attorney is your best source for this kind of information.
