The recent crack down on illegal transient vacation rentals (TVR’s) has become a reality for many Maui landlords and especially for one in particular. California resident and Maui homeowner Stephanie Rager is having legal action brought against her by Maui County. If she is convicted, she will have to pay up to $200,000 for repeatedly renting her home after having been warned. The case against her is strong, and it seems that the County will be making an example of her. Though the maximum penalty is not anticipated, Maui Lawyers are licking their chops.
Meanwhile, condominium communities zoned for vacation rentals will continue to prosper as well as hotels and resorts.
