On June 14, 2019, New York lawmakers approved, and Governor Cuomo signed, the “Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019” (the Act). The Act contains a series of laws affecting all rentals within the State of New York, making permanent New York’s rent regulation laws, including the Emergency Tenant Protection Act of 1974. Proponents of the Act state that making these rent regulation laws permanent will ensure that New York’s tenants are protected. However, as with any legislation, especially one that seems to have been enacted hastily, there are unintended and possibly quite adverse long-term consequences.
