: I think that my building is an SRO that is not registered with the Department of Housing. My lanlord is in the process of selling it and I want to make sure that the building is listed correctly so that I am protected. Also, is my room stabalized? Help! I need to know quickly. I am a New York City resident; my building was built pre-1938 but is listed as a type "B" multiple dwelling - 2 family with seven furnished rooms at the building department. I do not have a written lease.

sounds like an SRO to me!

type B, copied from the law itself:

A "class B" multiple dwelling is a multiple dwelling which
is occupied, as a rule transiently, as the more or less
temporary abode of individuals or families who are lodged
with or without meals. This class shall include hotels,
lodging houses, rooming houses, boarding houses, boarding
schools, furnished room houses, lodgings, club houses,
college and school dormitories and dwellings designed as
private dwellings but occupied by one or two families with
five or more transient boarders, roomers or lodgers in one

there is a special tenant clinic for only SRO's; it is in Manhattan, uptown. call one off these people : they probably know the name:
