BILL NUMBER:S5847

An act
to amend chapter 576 of the laws of 1974 amending the emergency housing

certain cases, the emergency housing rent control law, chapter 329 of the
laws of 1963 amending the emergency housing rent control law relating to

rental residential property to cooperative or condominium ownership in
certain municipalities in the counties of Nassau, Westchester and
Rockland and the rent regulation reform act of 1997, in relation to
extending the period of effectiveness thereof

PURPOSE:

This bill would extend the various provisions of laws relating to rent
regulations until and including June 23, 2011.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Sections 1 and 2 of the bill would amend the emergency housing rent
control law relating to the control of and stabilization of rent in
certain cases to provide that such provisions shall remain in effect
until and including June 23, 2011 so long as localities determine the
existence of a public emergency.

Section 3 of the bill would amend the emergency housing rent control
law relating to recontrol of rents in Albany to provide that such
provisions shall remain in effect until and
including June 23, 2011.

Section 4 of the bill would amend the general business law and the
administrative code of the city of New York relating to conversion of
residential property to cooperative and condominium ownership in the
city of New York to provide that such provisions shall remain in
effect until and including June 23, 2011.

Section 5 of the bill would amend the general business law relating to
the conversion of rental residential property to cooperative and
condominium ownership in certain municipalities in the counties of
Nassau, Westchester and Rockland to provide that such provisions
shall remain in effect until and including June 23, 2011.

Section 6 of the bill would amend the rent regulation reform act of
1997 to provide that such provisions shall continue until and
including June 23, 2011.

Section 7 of the bill sets forth the effective date.

EXISTING LAW:


The various provisions of laws relating to rent regulations will
expire on June 23, 2011.

STATEMENT IN SUPPORT:

Passage of this bill would prevent widespread uncertainty about the
rights of owners and tenants and stop the rents of thousands of New
Yorkers from increasing to a point at which they could no longer
afford to live in their homes. This bill would, therefore, avert a
crisis to which local governments could not respond adequately.

BUDGET IMPLICATIONS:

This bill would not have an impact on State finances.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This bill takes effect immediately.
