BILL NUMBER: S1084

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in
relation to the registration of property and designation of mailing
address


PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL :
Provides that owners of real property in the city of New York shall
designate the address where such owner receives their daily or regular
mail.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :
Adds a new section 11-309.1 (a). The owner of any lot, piece or parcel
of land in the city of New York must register such property, together
with the section, block and lot number thereof, or such other
identifying information as at the time it is established by the
department of finance, and a statement of the applicant's interest
therein, together with a written request that such lot, piece or
parcel of land be registered in the name of the applicant. In such
statement the applicant shall designate an address to which official
notifications and correspondence shall be mailed to, such address
shall be where the applicant receives their daily or regular mail. A
brief description of such lot, piece or parcel of land corresponding
to the description thereof in the statement so filed, together with
the name of the applicant and his or her designated address and the
date of such application, shall thereupon be registered in the
department of finance. (b) The commissioner of finance or his or her
designee shall for the purpose of this section provide appropriate
records for each section of the city, included within the respective
boroughs, as the same shall appear upon the tax maps of the city.

JUSTIFICATION :
Real Estate tax, water and sewer bills and all legal documents
pertaining to a parcel of land, property or building must be
registered in the name and address where the individual owner or
organization receives daily or regular mail.

Rational, it has become the practice for individuals, organizations or
corporations to register their properties at the property's address.
Unfortunately, real estate tax, water and sewer bills pertaining to
the properties are being displaced or not received by the individual,
corporation or owner of record.

The New York City Department of Finance quarterly mails their bills
and receives thousand of returns because the bills are undeliverable.
If bills are received in a timely manner landlords will have an
opportunity to pay their bills or make an agreement and thus be able
to keep their property.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
