: possible?

: All buildings built prior to 1974 with 6 or more units are automatically
: covered by stabilization. If the building was built (or substantially
: rehabbed) after 1974, it is not automatic but many owners voluntarily
: opt innnto stabilization in exchannge for substantial tax abatements,
: usually under the J-51 or 421-a tax programs. In such instances the
: stabilization status is for a defined period of time. These can get complicated
: and the owner is required to notify you on each and every lease. If he
: does not, then he may forego the "lifting" of stabilization status when the
: time comes and you would then be stabilized for the duration of your tenancy.

In a building of fewer than 6 units, with a J-51 which expired years ago, does the
landlord have to file to de-stabilize the apartments once the tax abatement expired
or does it happen automatically when the apartment turns over (to a new
tenant after the J-51 expired). Does the landlord have to notify new tenants
that the building was stabilized once, but now is not?
