Local Tenant Protections Apply to Former HUD Buildings

BY MICHAEL A. RICCARDI New York Law Journal Thursday, May 18, 2000

Judge Milin observed that in four other instances, buildings have been
held to enter or reenter Rent Stabilization coverage after the termination
of other regulation: buildings leaving the Mitchell-Lama program;
cooperative apartments which lose that status upon foreclosure;
apartments taken by the New York City government that are transferred
to private ownership, and small apartment buildings that are built up to
six units or more.

A HUD advisory opinion, furthermore, said that termination of federal
regulation subjects rental housing to state regulation when HUD
jurisdiction ends.

Judge Milin's holding is also in harmony with an administrative decision
of the state Division of Housing and Community Renewal dealing with
the twin building next door to 223 W. 16th Street. The DHCR, in June
1999, ruled that HUD leases, upon the end of HUD jurisdiction, were
subject to protection under the Rent Stabilization Law.

Stephen Dobkin of Collins, Dobkin & Miller represented the tenants.
Michael H. Klein of Kestenbaum, Dannenberg & Klein represented
the landlord.
