New York City Council: End Landlord Harassment of Tenants
This petition had 137 supporters
What’s the problem?
All over New York City, low-income tenants are being displaced from their homes as changing neighborhoods give landlords the opportunity to increase their profits by bringing in new, higher-paying tenants. Many landlords resort to harassment and other illegal tactics, especially in rent-stabilized apartments, because getting long-term tenants out gives the landlord the opportunity to renovate the apartment, raise the rent, and increase their profits with higher-paying tenants.
What do we want?
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our city council members and the Mayor, leaders, including our councilman NYC Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez, to act now to pass City Legislation to prevent landlords in buildings with a history of harassment from getting work permits to do gut renovations from the Department of Buildings. The law would require landlords to have a “Certificate of No Harassment” in order to get permission to renovate.
