“Good Cause” Anti-Eviction Bill A5573 and S3082

RIDGEWOOD0014.JPG

RPOCA is fighting 'No Eviction Ever!'

 

Under the Legislature’s misleadingly named “Good Cause Eviction” bill, the following occupants can all remain in their apartments forever and the property owner has virtually no recourse:

  • An Airbnb user who never intends to leave.

  • Tenants not paying enough rent to keep up buildings.

  • A roommate temporarily renting a room who later decides not to move out.

“No Eviction Ever” would be a better name for an absurdly vague, sweeping proposal that would place strict new limits on rent increases and evictions for nearly 1.6 million New York renters.

We are asking our members to call your state representatives  and voice your opposition.

Your representative is listed on the Resources Page

State Senator Joe Addabbo has informed our organization that he is opposed to this bill and  has organized a group of senators to block the bill (at least as it is currently written).  

     It is understood that the speaker of the Assembly Carl Heastie is in favor of this bill.

We have spoken to our Assembly Member Catherine Nolan about this bill, and she is taking our opposition into consideration
