About the Book:
Since the 2014 amendments to the Rent Stabilization Code and the creation of the Tenant Protection Unit, the state and city have been aggressively going after landlords who have deregulated apartments illegally, including many who have done so unwittingly.

As a result, apartments are being forced back into regulation—the state estimates that 50,000 units have been returned to regulation over the past few years!

Confused about the Rent Regulations? Check the most comprehensive, up-to-date reference guide for New York landlords BEFORE you make an expensive call to your attorney about:

  • Whether a recently vacated apartment can be deregulated;
  • Whether to attempt to recover an apartment for owner occupancy;
  • Whether to challenge the denial of rent increase for an MCI; or
  • Any other rent regulatory issue

The 2019 New York Rent Regulation Checklist will help you:

  • Protect your legally deregulated apartments from being forced back into regulation
  • Deregulate eligible apartments while reducing the risk of agency action
  • Win disputes arising from tenant overcharge complaints
  • Get maximum allowable rent increases
  • Avoid raising red flags that attract the scrutiny of the TPU, the DHCR, and other agencies enforcing the rent regs  

Modeled after the popular New York City Apartment Management Checklist, this new book presents each chapter with plain English explanations of the law and regs, including:

  • Who Is Affected
  • What the Law Requires
  • How to Comply
  • Deadlines
  • Penalties for Failure to Comply
  • Forms Required
  • Relevant Text of Law
