Description

Illegal use of rental apartments as AirBNB.

This entrepreneur has set up a service, RERENT, where he handles Yale grad students' sub-rentals of their apartments, regardless of the fact that it almost always violates their rental contract, and turns the building into a de facto "tourist hotel", for which it has no operating permit.

Last night at 10 PM, 3 AirBNB clients tried to force their way into my front door, thinking it was the AirBnB at 45 Woodland Street! The brilliant Yale entrepreneur, of course, was nowhere around. How about if I wanted to monetize HIS peace of mind and the sanctity of HIS home? Another brilliant market plan.

also asked...
Q. Is the problem blight (trash, etc) outside, or is it a problem with the building (illegal use, housing code violation, etc)?
A. Building Problem
