On April 26, 2018, a unanimous Court of Appeals held that apartments vacated between 1997 and 2011 will be considered luxury deregulated where the legal regulated rent was $2,000 or more at the time the incoming tenant moved in. The court reversed the First Department, which had held that such apartments would not be deregulated unless the rent was $2,000 or more at the time the outgoing tenant vacated. As has been widely reported, this was a major victory for the real estate industry.

Legislative efforts to invigorate the requirement have largely been ignored by the courts. Yet litigants continue to challenge zoning ordinances as inconsistent with a comprehensive plan.
