Memo

BILL NUMBER:S6884

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 449 of the laws of 1986 amending the private housing finance law relating to establishing initial rents in respect of certain loans to owners of existing multiple dwellings, in relation to the effective date thereof

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

This bill extends the existing authority of the local housing agency in the City of New York to restructure rents in residential buildings that have received low-interest, municipally-financed rehabilitation loans under Article 8 of the Private Housing Finance Law ("PHFL"). Currently, the ability to restructure rents expires on June 30, 2014. This extender would be effective for loans closed on or before June 30, 2018.

REASONS FOR SUPPORT:

Chapter 142 of the Laws of 2010 extended the authority of the local housing agency in the City of New York, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD"), to restructure rents in dwelling units rehabilitated after June 30, 2010. This authority expires on June 30, 2014. This legislation extends this authority to June 30, 2018, thereby allowing HPD to continue effectively utilizing Article 8 of the PHFL as an essential tool for the rehabilitation of affordable housing in New York City.

The extension of this rent restructuring authority is crucial in allowing for the payment of a building's monthly operating costs and debt service and for multiple dwellings receiving Article 8 rehabilitation loans to be preserved as affordable housing.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately with provisions.
