Southampton Raises Penalties on Illegal Rentals

New, 5 comments

Landlords of illegal short-term rentals in Southampton Town have factored the town's $8000 fine into a cost of doing business, so to retaliate, the town is raising fines to as high as $30,000 for a second offense within 18 months.

The town board passed the new fines unanimously.
