Apartment Deregulation & Substantial Rehabilitation in New York, NY
Recovering & Deregulation Apartments Through Substantial Rehabilitation
Apartments registered with the Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) must be substantially renovated and made new in order to render the rent history irrelevant and remove its regulated status.
Since the enactment of the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act on June 14, 2019, landlords of rent-regulated apartments cannot point to simple renovations or tenants vacating apartments as justification for raising rents; they should be thoroughly prepared for the DHCR to consider their substantial rehabilitation application
The Price Law Firm’s expert rent regulation attorneys have prevailed in cases for clients on both sides of the apartment deregulation issue.
