The South Fork certainly seems hot-and-cold toward the sharing economy. Southampton may one day permit short-term rentals through platforms like Airbnb and VRBO, which today are mostly illegal, 27East reported. Currently, a homeowner can only rent out up to two rooms in a single-family house if the term of the rental lasts at least two weeks and it happens no more than twice per season. These restrictions may need to be reevaluated in order to strengthen the rental market, said Southampton town supervisor Jay Schneiderman. “I look at Airbnb the same way I look at Uber,” he told the outlet. “This is the future — but people have to comply with the law.” [27E]
