Requires division of housing and community renewal and owners under their purview to provide building service registration forms in addition to lease renewal information.
TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the emergency tenant protection act of nineteen seventy-four in relation to requiring building services registration form RR-3(i), found in 9 NYCRR 2528.2, be included in the copy of the renewal lease provided to the tenant
PURPOSE: To include the building services registration form for tenants signing a new or renewal lease in the forms package. The purpose of adding this form is to furnish tenants with documentation of the building wide services that the building owner has agreed to provide to all tenants.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This legislation amends subdivision c of section 10 of section 4 of chapter 576 of the laws of 1974.
JUSTIFICATION: At the time a tenant signs a new or renewal lease, they are currently furnished with a copy of the fully executed new or renewal lease containing the signatures of the tenant and the beginning and end dates of the terms of the lease within 30 days of signing. This legislation would require that the landlord or management company provide the tenant with a building services registration form RR-3(i) , found in NYCRR 2528.2, at the time of signing both a new or renewal lease. The building services registration form, filled out by the building owner or manager, explains the services provided to tenants residing in a specific apartment building, and also acts as a registration form for rent stabilized tenants.
LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2009-2010: S.5522 - Referred to Housing, Construction and Community Development
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal costs expected for the landlord or management company who must include one additional sheet of paper or more explaining building wide services.
EFFECTIVE DATE: Shall take effect immediately, with provisions.
