: The NY City leases I have always dealt with, I have never seen this term. The tenants rights are clearly outlined though.
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. http://www.law.cornell.edu/topics/landlord_tenant.html
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).
