The courts will have to rule on this and many of the other garbage that DHCR wrote in its new codes for rent stab and rent control. Read the review of the first version posted on TN: The RSL imposes on DHCR the duty to promulgate a code "not inconsistent with law"
and sets forth specific standards, including that "[N]o provision of such code shall
impair or diminish any right or remedy granted to any party by this law or any other
provision of law." RSL 26-511 (b). Instead of complying with this mandate, DHCR
has drafted a proposed Rent Stabilization Code which guts most of the tenant
protections which remained after the Rent Regulatory Reform Act of 1997 (RRRA
1997) . Indeed, DHCR seeks to repeal key provisions of the Rent Stabilization Law
which the legislature retained when it amended the RSL in 1997, thereby usurping
legislative powers.
