Why TLP made this Class:
- We made this class because many New Yorkers want to engage in the sharing economy by doing Airbnb or other short-term subleasing in their NYC apartments without breaking the law or legally jeopardizing their tenancies.
- New Yorkers want to learn best practices for avoiding trouble if they are doing everything with respect to their short-term subletting legally.
- Thus, we made this class, which comes with a 40-page book, eight video lessons containing 72 minutes of material, and a 30-question quiz.
This class is for the following people:
- people who rent an apartment in a one or two family home
