By Eileen O’Toole, Esq.
On June 14, 2019, the New York State Legislature enacted the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (the Act), which significantly altered existing rent control and rent stabilization laws. The Legislature followed up on June 25, 2019, by enacting a “Clean Up Bill” to clarify some provisions of the Act. Most provisions of the Act became effective immediately on June 14, 2019.
