Buildings That Contain Rent Stabilized Units


This 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.

How to tell if a building is rent stabilized:

In general, stabilized buildings:

  • Contain 6 or more units;
  • Were built before 1974;
  • Are not co-ops or condos;

However, 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.

There 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.)

The 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 DHCR office.

Additional explanatory information on rent stabilization may be found in this fact sheet and in our FAQ section on rent stabilization.

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.


How to use this information: 

1. Buildings are grouped by zip code. Within each zip code, buildings are sorted first by street name and then by building number.

2. 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.

3. The lists also indicate some additional information about the building if it was available:

  • Co-op 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.
  • 421a 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.
  • Multiple 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.
  • Type of Structure: hi-rise, garden complex, etc.
  • 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.

4. The lists do NOT include owner information. However, you can find owner information, as well as a wealth of other building-specific information, on three NYC.gov web site's:

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. Inclusion on the list is not determinative of the building's current status. The list is searchable by either address and/or zip code and include both buildings within and outside of NYC. However, the list may not include all buildings that have rent regulated tenants:
