On Friday, June 14, 2019, the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 was passed and signed in the New York State legislature that will significantly help to protect tenants from eviction and preserve more rent-stabilized apartments. The Act will close several flaws in New York rent laws designed by landlords that allowed them to unjustly raise rents and evict tenants. Some parts of the Act applies to rent-stabilized apartments while others apply for non-stabilized apartments. The Act is in effect for the entire state and complies with other New York City rent laws. Learn how the new rent laws may help you as a tenant, and what to do to become informed on your rights!
