Rent Law of 2003

The following is the text of the June, 2003 amendment to various rent laws, passed by the NYS Legislature and signed by the Governor. It remained in effect until June 23, 2011.

It has been superseded by the Rent Act of 2011 and Rent Act of 2015.

Three major changes were put into effect with passage of the Rent Law of 2003:

1) Limits the ability of NYC to pass laws concerning rent regulatory
issues controlled by the State;

2) Allows for the deregulation of an apartment upon vacancy if the
legal regulated rent may be raised above $2000, even if the new
tenant is not actually charged an amount above $2000;

3) Permits an owner, upon renewal, to increase a rent stabilized
tenant's rent to the maximum legal regulated rent, regardless of
whether a tenant has been paying a preferential rent.

        S. 5693                             2
 
     1    5.  Authority for local rent control legislation.  Each city having a
     2  population of one million or more, acting through its local legislative
     3  body, may adopt and amend local laws or ordinances in respect of the
     4  establishment or designation of a city housing  rent agency.  When it
     5  deems such action to be desirable or necessitated by local conditions in
     6  order to  carry  out the purposes of this section, such city, except as
     7  hereinafter provided, acting through its local legislative body and not
     8  otherwise, may adopt and amend local laws or ordinances in respect of
     9  the regulation and control of residential rents, including but not
    10  limited to provision for the establishment and adjustment of maximum
    11  rents, the classification of housing accommodations, the  regulation  of
    12  evictions, and the enforcement of such local laws or ordinances. The
    13  validity of any such local laws or ordinances, and the rules or regu-
    14  lations promulgated in accordance therewith, shall not be affected by
    15  and need not be consistent with the state emergency housing rent control
    16  law or with rules and regulations of the state division of housing and
    17  community renewal.
    18    Notwithstanding any local law or ordinance, housing accommodations
    19  which became vacant on or after July first, nineteen hundred seventy-one
    20  or which hereafter become vacant shall be subject to the provisions of
    21  the emergency tenant protection act of nineteen seventy-four, provided,
    22  however, that this provision shall not apply or  become effective with
    23  respect to housing accommodations which, by local law or ordinance, are
    24  made directly subject to regulation and control by a city housing rent
    25  agency and such agency determines or finds that the housing accommo-
    26  dations became vacant because the landlord or any person acting on his
    27  behalf, with intent to cause the tenant to vacate, engaged in any course
    28  of conduct (including but not limited to, interruption or discontinuance
    29  of essential services) which interfered with  or  disturbed or was
    30  intended to interfere with or disturb the comfort, repose, peace or
    31  quiet of the tenant in his use or occupancy of the housing accommo-
    32  dations. The removal of any housing accommodation from regulation and
    33  control of rents pursuant to the vacancy exemption provided for in this
    34  paragraph shall not constitute or operate as a ground for the subjection
    35  to more stringent regulation and control of any housing accommodation in
    36  such property or in any other property owned  by the same landlord,
    37  notwithstanding any prior agreement to the contrary by the landlord. The
    38  vacancy exemption provided for in this paragraph shall not arise with
    39  respect to any rented plot or parcel of land otherwise subject to the
    40  provisions of this act, by reason of a transfer of title and possession
    41  occurring on or after July first, nineteen  hundred seventy-one of a
    42  dwelling located on such plot or parcel and owned by the tenant where
    43  such transfer of title and possession is made  to a member of the
    44  tenant's immediate family provided that the member of the tenant's imme-
    45  diate family occupies the dwelling with the tenant prior to the transfer
    46  of title and possession for a continuous period of two years.
    47    The term "immediate family" shall include a husband, wife, son, daugh-
    48  ter,  stepson, stepdaughter, father, mother, father-in-law or mother-in-
    49  law.
    50    Notwithstanding the foregoing, no local law or ordinance shall here-
    51  after provide for the regulation and control of residential rents and
    52  eviction in respect of any housing accommodations which are (1) present-
    53  ly exempt from such regulation and control or (2) hereafter decontrolled
    54  either by operation of law or by a city housing rent agency, by order or
    55  otherwise. No housing accommodations presently subject to regulation and
    56  control pursuant to local laws or ordinances adopted or amended under
 
 
        S. 5693                             3
 
     1  authority of this subdivision shall hereafter be by local law or ordi-
     2  nance or by rule or regulation which has not been theretofore approved
     3  by the state commissioner of housing and community renewal subjected to
     4  more stringent or restrictive provisions of regulation and control than
     5  those presently in effect.
    6    Notwithstanding any other provision of law, on and after the effective
     7  date of this paragraph, a city having a population of one million or
     8  more shall not, either through its local legislative body or otherwise,
     9  adopt or amend local laws or ordinances with respect to the regulation
    10  and control of residential rents and eviction, including but not limited
    11  to provision for the establishment and adjustment of rents, the classi-
    12  fication of housing accommodations, the regulation of evictions, and the
    13  enforcement of such local laws or ordinances, or otherwise adopt laws or
    14  ordinances pursuant to the provisions of this act, the emergency tenant
    15  protection act of nineteen seventy-four, the New York city rent and
    16  rehabilitation law or the New York city rent stabilization law,  except
    17  to the extent that such city for the purpose of reviewing the continued
    18  need for the existing regulation and control of residential rents or to
    19  remove a classification of housing accommodation from such regulation
    20  and control adopts or amends local laws or ordinances pursuant to subdi-
    21  vision three of section one of this act, section three of the emergency
    22  tenant protection act of nineteen seventy-four, section 26-415 of the
    23  New York city rent and rehabilitation law, and  sections 26-502 and
    24  26-520 of the New York city rent stabilization law of nineteen hundred
    25  sixty-nine.
    26    Notwithstanding any provision of this act to the contrary, any local
    27  law adopted pursuant to this act shall provide that notwithstanding any
    28  provision of such local law in the case where all tenants occupying the
    29  housing accommodation on the effective date of this paragraph have
    30  vacated the housing accommodation and a family member of such vacating
    31  tenant or tenants is entitled to and continues to occupy the housing
    32  accommodation subject to the protections of such act, if such accommo-
    33  dation continues to be subject to such act after such family member
    34  vacates, on the occurrence of such vacancy the maximum collectable rent
    35  shall be increased by a sum equal to the allowance then in effect for
    36  vacancy leases for housing accommodations covered by the rent stabiliza-
    37  tion law of nineteen hundred sixty-nine, including the amount allowed by
    38  paragraph (5-a) of subdivision c of section 26-511  of  such  law.  This
    39  increase shall  be in addition to any other increases provided for in
    40  this act and shall be applicable in like manner to  each second subse-
    41  quent succession.
    42    Notwithstanding the foregoing, no local law or ordinance shall subject
    43  to such regulation and control any housing accommodation which is not
    44  occupied by the tenant in possession as his primary residence; provided,
    45  however, that such housing accommodation not occupied by the tenant in
    46  possession as his primary residence shall continue to be subject to
    47  regulation and control as provided for herein unless the city housing
    48  rent agency issues an order decontrolling such accommodation, which the
    49  agency shall do upon application by the landlord whenever it is estab-
    50  lished by any facts and circumstances which, in the judgment of the
    51  agency, may have a bearing upon the question  of  residence, that the
    52  tenant maintains his primary residence at some place other than at such
    53  housing accommodation.
    54    § 2. Paragraph 13 of subdivision a of section 5 of section 4 of chap-
    55  ter  576 of the laws of 1974, constituting the emergency tenant
 
 
        S. 5693                             4

     2  the laws of 1997, is amended to read as follows:

     4  thousand dollars or more per month at any time  between the effective
     5  date of this paragraph and October first, nineteen hundred ninety-three
     6  which is or becomes vacant on or after the effective date of this para-
     7  graph, or any housing accommodation with a legal regulated rent of two
     8  thousand dollars or more per month at any time on or after the effective
     9  date of the rent regulation reform act of 1997  which is or becomes
    10  vacant on or after the effective date of the rent regulation reform act
    11 of 1997. This exclusion shall apply regardless of whether the next
    12  tenant in occupancy or any subsequent tenant in occupancy actually is
    13  charged or pays less than two thousand dollars a month. Provided howev-
    14  er,  that this exclusion shall not apply to housing accommodations which
    15  became or become subject to this act (a) by virtue of receiving tax
    16  benefits pursuant to section four hundred twenty-one-a or four hundred
    17  eighty-nine of the real property tax law, except as otherwise provided
    18  in subparagraph (i) of paragraph (f) of subdivision two of section four
    19  hundred twenty-one-a of the real property tax law, or (b) by virtue  of
    20  article seven-C of the multiple dwelling law. This paragraph shall not
    21  apply, however, to or become effective with respect to housing accommo-
    22  dations which the commissioner determines or finds that the landlord or
    23  any person acting on his or her behalf, with intent to cause the tenant
    24  to vacate, has engaged in any course of conduct (including, but not
    25  limited to, interruption or discontinuance of required services) which
    26  interfered with or disturbed or was intended to interfere with or
    27  disturb the comfort, repose, peace or quiet of the tenant in his or her
    28  use or occupancy of the housing accommodations and in connection with
    29  such course of conduct, any other general enforcement provision of this
    30  act shall also apply.
    31    §  3. Section 10 of section 4 of chapter 576 of the laws of 1974,

    33  four, is amended by adding a new subdivision a-2 to read as follows:
    34    a-2. Provides that where the amount of rent charged to and paid by the

    36  dation, the amount of rent for such housing accommodation which may be
    37  charged upon renewal or upon vacancy thereof may, at the option of the
    38  owner, be based upon such previously established legal regulated rent,
    39  as adjusted by the most recent applicable guidelines increases and other
    40  increases authorized by law. Where, subsequent to vacancy, such legal
    41  regulated rent, as adjusted by the most recent  applicable guidelines

     6  four hundred twenty-one-a or four hundred eighty-nine of the real prop-
     7  erty tax law, except as otherwise provided in subparagraph (i) of para-
     8  graph (f) of subdivision two of section four hundred twenty-one-a of the

    12  determines or finds that the landlord or any person acting on his or her
    13  behalf, with intent to cause the tenant to vacate, engaged in any course
    14  of conduct (including, but not limited to,  interruption or discontin-
    15  uance of required services) which interfered with or disturbed or was

    42  tenant in his or her use or occupancy of the housing accommodations and
    43  in connection with such course of conduct, any other general enforcement
    44  provision of this law shall also apply.
    45    § 6. Subdivision c of section 26-511 of the administrative code of the
    46  city of New York is amended by adding a new  paragraph 14 to read as
    47  follows:
    48   (14) provides that where the amount of rent charged to and paid by the
    49  tenant is less than the legal regulated rent for the housing accommo-
    50  dation, the amount of rent for such housing accommodation which may be
    51  charged upon renewal or upon vacancy thereof may, at the option of the
    52  owner, be based upon such previously established legal regulated rent,
    53  as adjusted by the most recent applicable guidelines increases and any
    54  other increases authorized by law. Where, subsequent to vacancy, such
