What is the difference between Rent control and Rent Stabilization- Apartments in Brooklyn


What is the difference between rent control rent stabilization – apartments in Brooklyn NY

Rent Control:

The rent control program applies to residential buildings constructed before February 1947 in municipalities that have not declared an end to the post war rental housing emergency.  There are 51 municipalities that have rent control including New York City.  For an apartment to be under rent control, the tenant (or their lawful successor such as a family member, spouse or adult lifepartner) must have been living in that apartment continuously since befer July , 1971.  When a rent controlled apartment baecomes vacant it either become rent stabilized or if it is in a building with fewer than six units it is generally removed form regulation.

An apartment in a one or two family house must have a tenant in continuous occupancy since Aparil  1, 1953 in order to abe subject to rent control.  Once it is vacated after that date it is no longer subject ot regulation.  Previously controlled apartments may have been decontrolled on other grounds.

Rent Stabilization:

In NYC, rent stabilized apartments are those apartments in building of six or more units built between February  , 1947 and January 1, 1974.

Tenants in buildings of six or more units built befor Feb 1, 1947 and who move in after June 30, 1971 are also covered by rent stabilization.

There is a category of rent stabilized apartments where buildings with three or more apartments constructed or extensively renovated since 1974 with special tax benefits.  These buildings are stabilized only while the tax benefits continue.

There are some exceptions- refer to New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal .

New York City’s rent stabilization system was enacted in 1969 when rents were rising sharply in many post war buildings. Rent stabilized tenants are protected from sharp increases and have the right to renew their leases.  The rent Guidelines Board sets the allowable percentage increase for renewal leases each year.
