That Contain Rent Stabilized Units
web page links to downloadable listings of buildings in New York City that
contain rent stabilized apartments. It does NOT list which apartments in
these buildings are rent stabilized.
to tell if a building is rent stabilized:
In general, stabilized buildings:
- Contain 6 or
- Were built
- Are not co-ops
not all apartments in these buildings are necessarily rent stabilized. For an apartment to
be stabilized it must:
- Have had a
rent of less than $2,000, if one initially moved into the apartment between
1993 and June 23, 2011.
- Have had a
rent of less than $2,500, if one initially moved into the apartment since June 24, 2011.
are many exceptions to
these rules. (For instance, if you moved into the apartment BEFORE the building
was converted to a co-op, the apartment may be stabilized. Also, some newly
constructed buildings may be stabilized due to a 421-a or J-51 tax exemption
even if the rent is $2,000 or more.)
lists on our website only include buildings whose owners registered with
the NY State Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR). If an owner
filed after the lists were compiled or not at all, a building
may not be on our lists but may still contain rent stabilized apartments. The
only way to know for sure if
an apartment is rent stabilized is to contact the NY State
Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR), the state agency which
administers the rent laws. You
can reach DHCR by calling their InfoLine at 718-739-6400 or contact your local
explanatory information on rent stabilization may be found in this
fact sheet and in our FAQ section on rent
A list of definitions of Rent Regulation and Building Status terms as well as a further explanation of buildings contained on these listings can be found on the DHCR Web site.
to use this information:
Buildings are grouped by zip code. Within each zip code,
buildings are sorted first by street name and then by building number.
Some buildings have multiple addresses. If a building has
two addresses (e.g. 415 E. 52nd, also known as 404 E. 53rd), both addresses
are in the list.
The lists also indicate some additional information about
the building if it was available:
or condominium status: If the building is a co-op or
condominium, renters who move in AFTER the conversion
date are NOT protected by rent stabilization regulations.
or J-51: Buildings which are listed as "421-a" or "j-51" are
stabilized because they took advantage of the 421-a or
J-51 tax exemption program. These buildings remain rent
stabilized for the length of the tax exemption, and thereafter
may be deregulated if the buildings were not stabilized
prior to the participation in the tax exemption program.
Dwelling Class: Hotel or Rooming House/Class B Multiple
Dwelling status indicates a multiple dwelling which is
generally occupied transiently. A Class A Multiple Dwelling
generally is occupied as a permanent residence and are
mostly apartment houses.
of Structure: hi-rise, garden complex, etc.

Rent Regulated Building Search on DHCR's Web site
The buildings that will be listed on DHCR's web site have filed records with the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal at least one time from 1984 to the present year and may contain one or more regulated apartments.

However, the list may not include all buildings that have rent regulated tenants:
