With passage of the "Statewide Housing Security and Tenant Protection Act of 2019
" law, many areas of this website are out-of-date and no longer reflect current law. In particular, significant changes have been made regarding vacancy increases, deregulation, preferential rent, Major Capital Improvements, Individual Apartment Improvements, security deposits, and many other areas. Until individual webpages are updated, please contact NYS Homes and Community Renewal (HCR)
, the agency that enforces the rent laws, for more information.
