The Emergency Housing Rent Control Law of 1961 [EHRCL]

Section 14. INTENT. 1. It is the intention of this act to subject to control only those housing accommodations, as that term is defined herein, which were subject to rent control and for which a maximum rent was in effect on March first, nineteen hundred fifty, pursuant to federal or local laws, and in the discretion of the commission those housing accommodations for which a maximum rent was thereafter established, pursuant to the provisions of section four hereof. 2. Any reference made in this act to the local laws specified in chapter one of the laws of nineteen hundred fifty shall be deemed to be solely for the purposes of identification, and if any of such laws shall be held invalid, the reference made herein and any maximum rent established hereunder shall not be affected thereby. 3. The provisions of this section shall be deemed to supersede any other inconsistent provisions of this act. 4. Notwithstanding the decontrol of housing accommodations therein pursuant to this act, unless otherwise provided herein, no municipality shall have the power to adopt local laws with respect to the registration or control of rents or evictions or otherwise to the subject matter of this act.
