Notification bill stalled.
A bill which would have required residential tenants to notify property owners in writing 20 days before filing a complaint with the Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) was stalled in the New York State Assembly Housing Committee when the legislature adjourned for the year.
"The Senate bill died in the Assembly and never got out of Pete Grannis' Housing Committee," explained Frank Ricci, director of legislative issues for the Rent Stabilization Association (RSA). Ricci said the RSA will try again next year and has over 20 different items on the legislative agenda. "We're always working on it and we're always updating it," he said.
Ricci noted the Senate would have to re-pass this measure but it would not have to be reintroduced. "A lot of things can happen between now and January," he added, when the next session begins.
