vacant, or becomes vacant after the issuance of  such  judgment,  or  is
abandoned  by  the  mortgagor but occupied by a tenant, as defined under
section thirteen hundred five of this article, shall maintain such prop-
erty until such time as ownership has been transferred through the clos-
ing of title in foreclosure, or other disposition, and the deed for such
property has been duly recorded; provided, however, that  if  a  munici-
pality  or  governmental  entity  holds a mortgage subordinate to one or
more mortgages on the residential real  property,  the  municipality  or
governmental  entity  shall  not  be subject to the requirements of this
section.   AS USED IN THIS SECTION,  THE  TERM  "GOOD  FAITH"  SHALL  BE
DEFINED AS HONESTY IN FACT AND THE OBSERVANCE OF REASONABLE STANDARDS OF
FAIR DEALING.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
