AN ACT to amend the multiple dwelling law, in relation  to  coverage  of
  interim multiple dwellings and owner obligations


  Section 1. Section 282-a of the multiple dwelling law, as  amended  by
chapter 159 of the laws of 2011, is amended to read as follows:
  S  282-a.  [Limitation  on  applications] APPLICATIONS for coverage of
interim multiple dwellings and residential units. [1.  All  applications
for  registration  as  an  interim  multiple dwelling or for coverage of
residential units under this article shall be filed with the loft  board
within  six  months after the date the loft board shall have adopted all
rules or regulations necessary in order to implement the  provisions  of
chapter  one  hundred  forty-seven  of the laws of two thousand ten. The
loft board may subsequently amend such rules and  regulations  but  such
amendments  shall  not  recommence the time period in which applications
may be filed.   Notwithstanding any other  provision  of  this  article,
after  such date no further applications for registration or coverage as
an interim multiple dwelling or for coverage under this article shall be
accepted for owners or occupants of buildings that would otherwise qual-
ify as interim multiple dwellings or for coverage pursuant to this arti-
  2.] Where any occupant has filed an application for coverage  pursuant
to this article and has received a docket number from the loft board, it
shall be unlawful for an owner to cause or intend to cause such occupant
to  vacate, surrender or waive any rights in relation to such occupancy,
due to repeated interruptions or discontinuances of essential  services,
or  an  interruption  or  discontinuance  of an essential service for an
extended duration or of such significance  as  to  substantially  impair
habitability  of such unit, at any time before the loft board has made a
final determination, including appeals, to approve or deny such applica-
tion. This [subdivision] SECTION shall not grant any rights of continued
occupancy other than those otherwise granted by law. Any agreement  that
