Introduced  by  Sen.  YOUNG  -- read twice and ordered printed, and when

  Community Development

AN  ACT  to  amend  the  administrative code of the city of New York, in
  relation to requiring that the stabilization code  provide  that  upon
  the  failure  of the tenant to timely renew his or her lease or rental
  agreement, such lease or agreement may be deemed to have been renewed

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

  Section  1. Subdivision c of section 26-511 of the administrative code
of the city of New York is amended by adding a new paragraph 15 to  read
as follows:
  (15)  PROVIDES  THAT, NOTWITHSTANDING THE PROVISIONS OF ANY OTHER LAW,
WHERE THE TENANT FAILS TO TIMELY  RENEW  AN  EXPIRING  LEASE  OR  RENTAL
AGREEMENT  OFFERED  PURSUANT TO THIS LAW, AND REMAINS IN OCCUPANCY AFTER
EXPIRATION OF THE LEASE, SUCH LEASE OR RENTAL AGREEMENT MAY BE DEEMED TO
HAVE BEEN RENEWED UPON THE SAME TERMS AND CONDITIONS, AT THE LEGAL REGU-
LATED RENT, TOGETHER WITH ANY GUIDELINES  ADJUSTMENTS  THAT  WOULD  HAVE
BEEN  APPLICABLE  HAD THE OFFER OF A RENEWAL LEASE BEEN TIMELY ACCEPTED.
THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE RENT ADJUSTMENT UNDER THE DEEMED RENEWAL LEASE
SHALL COMMENCE ON THE FIRST RENT PAYMENT DATE  OCCURRING  NO  LESS  THAN
NINETY  DAYS  AFTER SUCH OFFER IS MADE BY THE OWNER. NOTWITHSTANDING THE
FOREGOING, AN OWNER MAY ELECT TO COMMENCE AN  ACTION  OR  PROCEEDING  TO
RECOVER  POSSESSION  OF  A HOUSING ACCOMMODATION IN A COURT OF COMPETENT
JURISDICTION WHERE THE TENANT, UPON THE EXPIRATION OF THE EXISTING LEASE
OR RENTAL AGREEMENT, FAILS TO TIMELY RENEW  SUCH  LEASE  IN  THE  MANNER
PRESCRIBED BY LAW.
  S  2.  This  act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after it shall
have become a law; and provided that the amendments to section 26-511 of
chapter 4 of title 26 of the administrative code of the city of New York
made by section one of this act shall expire on the same  date  as  such
law  expires and shall not affect the expiration of such law as provided
under section 26-520 of such law.
