Newman Ferrara LLP Files Class Action Lawsuit against Airbnb, Inc. for Violations of New York Law

Newman Ferrara LLP announced that the firm filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against Airbnb, Inc. for violations of New York law. The lawsuit, entitled Plazza v. Airbnb, Inc., 16-cv-01085, alleges that Airbnb has engaged and continues to engage in illegal real estate broker transactions in violation of Sec. 440 of New York Real Property Law (NYRPL) as well as Sec. 349 of New York General Business Law. Through its website, Airbnb lists and advertises property available for rent in New York (and other cities around the world), facilitates the rental transactions, including procuring the rental agreements and processing rental payments, and takes fees and/or commissions for its services. NYRPL Sec. 440 unambiguously requires individuals and entities who engage in these activities to maintain a New York State-issued real estate broker’s license. Nevertheless, Airbnb does not presently and has never had such a license. Consequently, the fees and commissions the company has charged are illegal.

Airbnb Announces New App for Apple Watch

Airbnb announced their new app for Apple Watch. Traveling is the ultimate on-the-go activity, and Airbnb’s new Apple Watch app makes it simple for hosts and guests to manage a new or upcoming trip and communicate with each other instantaneously. The new app for Apple Watch features Airbnb messaging, which is frequently used between hosts and guests before, during, or after a stay, and provides another reliable, efficient way to offer hospitality throughout a trip. Working in tandem with Airbnb’s current integration in Passbook for Apple Watch, hosts and travelers can use the Airbnb app to interact with one another without interruption. Hosts with an Apple Watch can receive a new booking request right on their wrists, complete with the traveler’s name and photo, requested dates, a personal message from them, and decide whether to accept or decline on the spot. Hosts can initiate and respond to messages, as well as create and save quick, pre-recorded responses to help maintain a healthy response rate. Rather than pack a computer or stay glued to a mobile device, travelers visiting new or familiar cities now have the ability to keep an ongoing conversation with their host, ask questions, or respond to incoming messages directly on Apple Watch straight from the app. Travelers using Passbook still have access to Airbnb for receiving alert notifications of upcoming reservations and accessing relevant information about their booking.
