A far-reaching and extensive liberalization of the real estate laws was enacted on June 14, 2019, and became immediately effective.  The impact on all residential leases statewide, both rent-stabilized and market-rate, will be significant. At this time, it is still unclear how it will affect commercial leases, but it is believed that those will be impacted in one way or another, as well.  What is clear is that the New York State Legislature has made its support of the tenant side of the aisle very evident.

As expected, tenant groups throughout the state are celebrating, while landlords are most decidedly are not.

We have been reviewing the act with regard to the forms we publish and reaching out to the courts and experts in the field to enable us to update our forms to comply with the act.
