Pataki "Pro-Owner" Code Amendments Withdrawn

On January 2, 2007, the state Division of Housing & Community Renewal (DHCR) withdrew all their proposed amendments to the Rent Stabilization Code and the Rent and Eviction Regulations. The withdrawal, directed by the new administration of Governor Eliot Spitzer, brings to an end the final attempts by the outgoing Pataki administration and the Rent Stabilization Association to weaken the rent laws with anti-tenant regulations.

President Ralph F. Carbone had testified against all of the "pro-owner" proposed regulations at a December 4, 2006 DHCR hearing. "It was very important to tenants to prevent housing in New York from becoming even more unaffordable and to avert a further easing of eviction regulations. These "sneak attack" amendments to the rent laws by the outgoing administration would have resulted in unjustified higher costs for tenants as well as unnecessarily loosened eviction regulations to their detriment."
