: The NY City leases I have always dealt with, I have never seen this term. The tenants rights are clearly outlined though.
: John

NYC leases, more so than in other cities, are one-sided. Most tenants' rights are missing from the lease. This is partly because NY state has not adopted the Uniform Residential Landlord Tenant Act of 1972.

Tenants' rights are rarely included, except when the landlords are required to (e.g.: the required clauses explaining some rent stabilized rights). Some clauses in standard leases are null and void by statute (e.g.: most roommate clauses). Other anti-tenant clauses are valid, but most tenants think they aren't (e.g., jury-trial waiver).
