: : : Who's in charge of the rent controlled apt I have been living in
for the past 40 years? The City Council or the State Legislature? Why
is this matter even up for discussion? I though the law expires only
if the vacancy rate reaches above 5%.. Did I miss something important
I should know about?
The rent regulatory laws (both RC & RS) are very complicated and they're
on the web site. The state legislature passes "enabling legislation"
which allows the municipalities to pass their own laws. The RC law
stems from 1962 and after the state allowed them to do it, the city
passed its own RC local laws. The state laws are up this year, and by
extension, the city laws as well.
Although Pataki is one of the villians, you should set your sites
locally -- on your own state assemblyman and state senator as well
as Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver; they are the ones who must be
held accountable for any weakening.
