The laws will be reauthorized before the session concludes and will almost
certainly be retroactive to the date of expiration. If there are several days where
the rent laws have technically expired, tenants are still protected.
- All rent-stabilized tenants' existing leases will remain in effect.
- Tenants in rent-controlled apartments within NYC are also protected.
- By law, any tenant whose lease expires in the coming days should already
have received a renewal lease. This lease will still be in effect once the tenant signs it, even if the rent laws expire .
- If your landlord attempts to contradict any of the above information, or if
they harass or threaten you in any way, please contact Public Advocate Tish James's special hotline: (212) 669- 7250 or firstname.lastname@example.org
