: What is the story with new totilets being installed. Old ones
work well, they are the flushometer type. Can landlord force the
tenants to accept them. They are saying it is a "City Law". We
understand that there have been serious accidents with them
where people got hurt. They're only giving us 2 days notice of

I'm glad you asked that question as we are currently working on
a new section for the web site dealing with this issue. We hope it will
be up by next week. In short, it is not a "city law" and it is
not mandatory no matter what your landlord says and you should
let your tenants know that. DHCR has issued an intimidation letter
but we advise tenants to ignore that as we believe it would never hold
up in court. It is a voluntary program designed for water conservation --
a good issue, yes, but not mandatory, and yes, people have had problems
with the toilets. If you need further info sooner, email us at
