New York State just became a whole lot more Tenant friendly. 

There are new rules regarding notices to terminate, notices of non-renewal, notices of rent increase, notices of non-payment, notices of inspection, notices to commence an action, - even Sheriff’s notices!  Landlords’ obligations have increased, as have Tenants’ protections.  For example, with regard to residential premises, landlords are now limited to collecting only one months’ security deposit and are required to provide written rent receipts in certain circumstances.  There are also significant restrictions on landlords’ abilities to make any changes in rent stabilized property.

Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, you need to be aware of the many significant changes made to the law by the new Statewide Housing Security & Tenant Protection Act of 2019.
