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

  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-
cle.
  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
