Make An Exception

The Housing and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 must not apply to Hamptons seasonal lessors. If seasonal lessors must be in compliance with this law, seasonal lessors will have no assurance that the tenant will pay the whole summer’s rental.

Ultimately, if this law is applied to seasonal leases, many homeowners who are dependent on summer leases in order to afford expenses and maintenance of their homes will sell and move away. Another loss of our local community, another loss of our working middle class, another loss of our character. What a travesty!

An exemption for seasonal, vacation rentals must be passed by the State Assembly immediately.
