BILL NUMBER: S997 TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the real property actions and proceedings law, in relation to certain holdover tenants PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL : To modify the provisions of the Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law to better protect individuals for whom finding similar housing in a limited period of time would "occasion extreme hardship" from being evicted in areas outside of New York City, where such protections already exist. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS : Section 1: Amends subdivision 1 of section 753 of the Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law, which currently allows tenants in New York City who are subject to a hold-over proceeding to be granted a stay of eviction for a period of up to six months if they can demonstrate similar housing is not otherwise available in the area where they live or that it would "occasion extreme hardship" if the stay was not granted, to make such provision applicable statewide. Section 2: Effective date.
