Latest News from the Tenants Association

Tenants Association to Hold Open Meeting Saturday, April 25. Rent Laws Expire in Less Than 2 Months.

UPDATE: The audio recording of this meeting is now available.

No matter when you moved in or how much rent you pay, you’re affected by the laws that are expiring on June 15. We need to make sure the laws are strengthened, not just renewed.

What tenants need:
Repeal of all deregulation, both vacancy and so-called high-income/high-rent deregulation
Close the preferential rent loophole that lets the landlord lure you in with a lower rent and then jack it up on renewal
MCI reform—make the charges temporary so we don’t pay them forever

Come hear tenant leader Michael McKee, State Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh, and State Senator Brad Hoylman—
• explain the situation
• tell you how we want the rent laws strengthened—for longtime tenants and new neighbors alike
• give you simple, easy things you can do

Don’t let Big Real Estate dictate what happens in Albany—and our homes.

Council Member Dan Garodnick will also be in attendance as a neighbor and member of the association, and will be joining us in pushing Albany to act.

An open mike question-and-answer session will give tenants the opportunity to ask about rent regulation issues.

Date: Saturday, April 25
Time: 2:00 p.m. (doors open at 1:30 p.m.)
Location: Simon Baruch Middle School 104, 20th Street between First and Second Avenues.
