Miami Beach is cracking down on “party homes”. Basically, neighbors of these houses in fancy schmancy neighborhoods are getting fed up with these crazy mansion parties that happen sporadically in their neighborhoods and officials are cracking down.
The measure will basically prohibit the advertising of short-term rental homes within Miami Beach city limits that are not up to code. With that said, its apparently, renting a house for less than six months and one day is already illegal on Miami Beach (wtf?). And repeat offenders have been fined $20,000, but that still hasn’t stopped certain promoters as they have willingly paid the fines. Between 2012-2013, 189 violations were handed out for renting out houses for the purpose of throwing parties.
All in all, this screams loopholes all over the place. So lets see with the final ruling from this morning shows.
