Happy Tuesday! Let’s catch up on the latest news.

Posted by Jordan Tapia | Jan 25, 2022

As we all know the moratorium expired on January 15, 2022. Tenant activists were once again afraid of the tsunami of evictions that was going to happen, however, a lot of protections have been put in place to help tenants. CHIP has talked about how the courts have been delaying the execution of possessory judgments as a way of creating an extra layer of protection for tenants. Attorneys representing property owners have expressed concern that this will further delay the courts. We will see how things develop from here.

CHIP has aggressively asked for more funding for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program. Governor Hochul has indicated that this fund is coming either from the federal government or from a pandemic relief pot.

After the tragic fire in the Bronx earlier this month, Mayor Eric Adams has been focusing on getting buildings up to code and urging tenants to make sure violations are reported and fixed so we can prevent another tragedy from happening again.

On January 26 CHIP and RSA will be hosting a seminar to discuss their joint federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the city and state rent stabilization laws.

We will post more updates soon!
