DHCR Giving Little Guidance on How to Amend Registrations

The DHCR’s most recent amendments to the Rent Stabilization Code now require that an owner seeking to amend past registrations file an application to amend unless the amendment has been directed by the DHCR or a court.

When no order has been issued, the DHCR has provided little guidance as to how amendments are to be applied for, and in what instances applications will be granted. No forms, fact sheets, or operational bulletins have been published. The owner is left to apply for an administrative determination, and hope for the best.
