Rent Regulations

Rent regulations are laws that aim to limit landlords’ abilities to raise rents, creating rent control or rent stabilization. They may also create new requirements for landlords to evict tenants and new building maintenance standards, and can implement public oversight of landlord. On June 14, 2019, New York State passed sweeping rent regulation reforms. TRD reported on these reforms and what they meant for tenants and landlords alike.

Rent Regulations Q&A

Who is impacted by rent regulations?
Rent regulations are generally intended to protect renters. Rules that limit rent increases and raise the bar for causes of eviction shield renters from changes in the market and can create stability for them. However, rent regulations also impact landlords. They impede their ability to raise rents to keep up with market prices, make it harder to evict insolvent tenants, and can make renovating rental properties are greater financial strain.
