Public Hearing: HPD
The Department of Housing Preservation and Development (“HPD”) proposes an amendment to Chapter 52 of Title 28 of the Rules of the City of New York, which governs the City’s Speculation Watch List. The proposed amendment revises the definition of Multiple Dwelling to enable HPD to more accurately identify sales transactions of rent-regulated buildings that could be indicative of a greater potential for tenant harassment. The existing definition captures certain new buildings that are unlikely to present greater risks for tenant harassment.

HPD will hold a public hearing on the proposed rule. The public hearing will take place from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM on Tuesday, August 13, 2019. The hearing will be in HPD’s offices at 100 Gold Street, 5th Floor, Room 5-B6, New York, New York 10038.
