Rentals | Regional Plan Association
Bad landlords, defined as property owners who cut corners on maintenance and harass tenants, make up just two percent of owners in the city. However, in spite of their status as a minority, they have a significant impact on the city’s economy. They cost taxpayers about $300 million per year, or nearly $100 in taxes for each New York City household, to cover expenditures relating to evictions and violation inspections and repairs, according to the Regional Plan Association. It is estimated that there are 1 million New Yorkers, including 250,000 children, who live in buildings owned by bad landlords. Read the report here.
