Miami Beach cut off his water to get him to pay Airbnb fines. Now city owes him $250k

Coral Gables, FL – April 14, 2021 — After three years, the Agentis litigation team is pleased that our client, 3098 Alton Road LLC, has finalized a settlement with the City of Miami Beach in which our client will receive $250,000. In 2018, in an effort to force our client to pay excessive fines for renting the property through Airbnb, the City of Miami Beach had both the water and electricity turned off. The litigation was protracted, but in the end the courts came to the right decision. Although violations of short-term rental ordinances have consequences, turning off the utilities is not one of them. We’re very happy with the outcome and are glad future homeowners don’t have face this type of abuse anymore. To read more about the case in the Miami Herald:
