Folly Beach Builder Files Lawsuit over Pause on Short-Term Rentals

Builder Michael Riffert with Folly East Indian Co., LLC has filed a lawsuit against the city of Folly Beach, S.C., claiming the city’s pause of short-term rentals is unconstitutional. Riffert said Folly Beach City Council had done the right thing by not approving a cap on short-term rentals in three prior votes. However, due to a recent petition forcing a referendum to put a cap on these licenses, Riffert felt he needed to take action. “It was not to stop a vote,” he said. “It was basically to stop our property rights being stepped on.”
