: Tenants in this building would like to know whether this bldg comes under

Buildings themselves are not stabilized or controlled; individual units
in buildings can be either Rent Stab, Rent Controlled or other including
free market. But aspects of the building do influence whether or not
individual units are under any particular regulatory scheme. In general
if a building is six or more units, was built prior to 1974 and is not
a coop, then there's a strong likelihood that the units should be
subject to stabilization (or Rent Control if the tenants have been there
since prior to 1971). Beyond that it gets very complicated and there's
myriad exceptions. You would have to look at the history of each unit.
ALso certain types of rehab in the building (J-51, 421-A) or issues of
high rent or high income decontrol will influence the status of a unit.
We do have a database where you can look up certain addresses. The databas
is from 1994 and was supplied by DHCR, but is not an absolute determinant.
Your building is on the database and it says the units are stabilized
and there is no coop and no Rent COntrol units in the building. That's
enough to do further research.
