  cy housing rent control law  and  the  local  emergency  housing  rent
  control  act, in relation to rent increases for rent regulated housing
  accommodations upon succession of the tenants

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Section 26-403.2 of the administrative code of the city of

  S  26-403.2  Increase in maximum collectable rent. Notwithstanding any
provision of this law to the contrary, in the  case  where  all  tenants
occupying  the  housing  accommodation  on  the  effective  date of this
section have vacated the housing accommodation and a  family  member  of
such  vacating  tenant or tenants is entitled to and continues to occupy
the housing accommodation subject to the protections of  this  law,  [if
such accommodation continues to be subject to this law after such family
member vacates,] on the occurrence of such vacancy the maximum collecta-
ble  rent  OF  SUCH  FAMILY  MEMBER  OF  SUCH TENANT OR TENANTS shall be
increased by a sum equal to the allowance then  in  effect  for  vacancy
leases  for housing accommodations covered by the rent stabilization law
of nineteen hundred sixty-nine, including the amount  allowed  by  para-
graph  five-a  of  subdivision  c  of  section  26-511 of such law. This
increase shall be in addition to any other  increases  provided  for  in
this law including an adjustment based upon a major capital improvement,
or  a  substantial increase or decrease in dwelling space or a change in
the services, furniture, furnishings or equipment provided in the  hous-
ing  accommodation, pursuant to section 26-405 of this law [and shall be
applicable in like manner to each second subsequent  succession].  WHERE

DATION  AND  A  FAMILY  MEMBER  OF SUCH TENANT OR TENANTS HAS EXECUTED A
